Event Type

Development Day

Brackenfield School in Nottingham

Informal/Semi-formal Curriculum


This is an opportunity to visit an Equals Curriculum Exemplar School and spend time with senior leaders and in classrooms. The purpose of this day is to increase the understanding of the Semi-Formal and Informal Curricula as well as being able to ask about assessment, planning or any other aspect of teaching and learning that you are interested in.

The ‘Equals Curriculum Exemplar Schools’ involve specialist schools, where Equals has provided additional consultancy over the past 2-3 years regarding the new Equals SoW. They have been observed implementing the Equals Curriculum Scheme of Works well in their own school. Schools that have benefited from this additional support, have provided presentations to Equals Members’, via Regional Curriculum Conferences.

They are able to articulate how the curriculum:

  • can be implemented
  • how it works with other processes such as Mapping and Assessing Personal Progress

What Our Members Say

Online CPD Sessions

“Love these courses, it is like having a university lecture/tutorial”

“I love listening to the evidence based information”

“All the information was presented simply and efficiently. It was interesting and the time passed very quickly. An excellent training session”

Rodney House School – Manchester

We feel the online training delivered by EQUALS have been WONDERFUL.  The relevance and depth of the sessions has been fantastic, Peter is a very knowledgeable man. Having training delivered online has enabled all our teachers to attend and have discussions after the event rather than one teacher attending and disseminating which can water down the content.
Thank you so much and keep them coming!
