The Alliance for Learning Teaching School chosen by Oak

The Alliance for Learning TSA has been chosen to provide the PSHE (RSHE) curriculum and lessons for the Oak National Academy.

Directed by Director of Teaching School Lisa Fathers, with input from a number of Alliance member schools, it will provide a virtual PSHE department for the nationwide on-line learning platform, delivering the overall PSHE curriculum, schemes of work, resources and lesson delivery around this important area of education.

Lisa Fathers says: “We are really excited and proud to be one of organisations contributing to this national initiative that allows students to keep on learning in the face of the ongoing Covid19 crisis. Self-isolating students need to access the full range of curriculum content including PSHE, and this content is even more important in challenging times for health and wellbeing.”

Oak National Academy is an online classroom and resource hub created by teachers, for teachers. It provides nearly 10,000 high-quality video lessons and resources, with content for the full academic year across primary, secondary and specialist schools.

It was created in April 2020 as a national response to the pandemic, with teachers and education experts creating online lessons. In its first term 4.7million users accessed 20 million lessons. It is staying open for all of 2020/21 to support contingency planning, remote and in-school teaching and we are delighted that the expertise of AFL is being used in this vital and valuable resource.
