Answer for London Curriculum

Answered By: 
The Mayor

So far 162 secondary schools are registered to use the London Curriculum, which was launched at start of this school year. This represents 26 per cent of all state secondary schools in London, including alternative provision and special schools.

To inspire more schools to engage, we have initiated a rich programme of events for teachers and activities and competitions for students, run with support from a wide range of cultural and heritage sector partners. We also take all opportunities in the GLA's education work to promote the current resources, such as to Gold Club schools and at our seminars and events. A phone survey of registered schools is also underway to determine how they are using the resources.
