Hands-On Education's approach to the National Curriculum

Hands-On Education is an online educational resource that understands the importance of the National Curriculum for England. As a leading provider of online educational activities to schools and homes, we take the curriculum seriously and aim to cover as many parts of it as possible within our framework. Our goal for each year group is to provide enjoyable activities, lesson plans, and worksheets that link to at least one point in the national curriculum, making learning fun for children while also providing effective resources for parents and teachers.

While we are unable to cover certain sections of the curriculum such as swimming and computer science, we do strive to fulfil each topic and subject within our spectrum of possibility as extensively as possible. In addition, we are proud to offer a fully mapped out curriculum guide for each year group, which can be used as a separate reference guide to the national curriculum of England. Our aim is to make the National Curriculum more accessible and manageable for Primary School Teachers and Home Educators, so that they can better support the educational needs of their students and children.
