Maths, English and Science Schemes of Work for
the National Curriculum



For pupils working below age related expectations – PMLD, SLD and MLD
Key Stages 1-4

Updated 2018

These Schemes of Work have been written by teachers who have expertise in Special Education. They were currently teaching pupils who were working below age related expectations.  The information has also been reviewed and critically reviewed by another group of teaching professionals, including Head Teachers and School Inspectors.


We hope that you will find the materials helpful when working with pupils who are achieving below the first two levels of the national curriculum and across all four key stages.


In writing these examples of good working practice, special consideration was given to the current mainstream and Special Education guidance at the time.

What Our Members Say

We have thousands of satisfied members since we began in 1994

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!

Peter Imray

“Lets focus on things that matter”.

“For those with a profound learning difficulty (PMLD), learning is best done when the learner is placed in the centre of the curriculum”.

Priory Woods School – Middlesbrough

“The Semi-formal Curriculum meets the needs of our special children and we feel more able to promote what the children need rather than being constrained by subject areas”.

“Freedom to be creative and concentrate on individual needs with a focus on independence”.
