Formal programme for schools

From Our Toolkit

All state maintained schools are required to deliver the curriculum. By looking at the programmes of study and attainment targets you will get a good idea of what each nation’s curriculum covers.

Education across the home nations

England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have their own governments and education is a devolved responsibility.

Onsite delivery

Activities delivered at your organisation are a great way to engage with schools. For examples of what other organisations deliver have a look at GEM’s Case Study Museums and Schools Working Together and their other Case studies.  These provide a wealth of ideas of developing and delivering sessions for schools.


Many heritage organisations deliver outreach activities for schools, this can include off site delivery, loans boxes and remote learning activities:
