The exemplar material has been developed by teachers from mainstream and special schools working together to adapt the syllabus units to get to the ‘Burning Core’. This helps to make the Key Concepts accessible to pupils with additional learning needs in mainstream and special schools and ensures overall coverage and progression.
Essentially this approach gives a ‘distillation’ of the syllabuses’ Key Content, which will not be covered in its entirety. This means that pupils will not entirely meet the Age-Related Expectations for their Key Stage.
The units may be adapted for each school setting, and there is a Word template available to download at the foot of this page to allow teachers to design their own units.
