Curriculum Planning and Support Packages

Leeds Museums & Galleries Curriculum Planning service for local Primary Schools can support you in creating a bespoke curriculum.

Through our Primary School Membership Scheme, we offer schools support in planning and intent, resourcing, and implementing their curriculums. We have expertise in teaching local and diverse histories and are in an excellent position to help schools embed their curriculums in the local area. This also ensures that teachers have the subject knowledge and feel confident in delivering it.

You can now access our Curriculum Planning and Support Packages without being a member. Find out more about our packages below and get in touch via email at [email protected].

What our schools say about us:

“When Oftsted visited us one of the targets they gave us was to develop teacher CPD and knowledge in the foundation subjects, and ensuring we have end points for pupils.

Working with Leeds Museums is really allowing us to fulfil this target and I’m sure, by the time Ofsted return, our curriculum will be first class. We will have created an enquiry-based bespoke curriculum, relevant to the needs of our community and pupils, that will ensure they receive a first-class education – what they truly deserve.”
