From Equals: Equals is extremely pleased to announce the availability of the first four Schemes of Work within its brand new Semi-Formal Curriculum specifically designed and written for learners of all ages with severe learning difficulties. These first four completed schemes cover My Communication, My Play and Leisure, My Independence and My Thinking and Problem Solving.

The aims of the Schemes of Work project have been

·        to build on the collaborative work of Penny Lacey and Swiss Cottage School;

·        to write outstanding practice schemes of work for non National Curriculum ‘areas of learning’;

·        to involve outstanding teachers in good and outstanding schools throughout England and Wales;

·        to produce schemes of work that are available to all schools on a cost recovery (not for profit) basis through the Equals website;

·        to share best practice within a broad band of stakeholders, including both the DfE and Ofsted.


The general principles governing the schemes of work are that they

·        are developmental in nature and open to personalisation - they start at the beginning of the individual pupil’s learning journey and aim for the highest level of independence possible;

·        cover all stages of education from 2 to 25 (and beyond) but are not directly related to either age or key stage. Learners fit into them where they will according to their individual abilities, interests and learning journey;

·        are not related to the National Curriculum, though the common language of the P scales is occasionally used for ease of understanding.

Black Mental Health UK (BMH UK)

From their website: Black Mental Health UK (BMH UK) was established in 2006 to raise awareness and address the stigma associated with mental illness.

The aim of our work is to see a reduction in the inequalities in the treatment and care of people from African Caribbean communities who use mental health services, and to inform these communities on how to influence the strategic development, policy design and implementation of services.

BMH UK's focus is on empowering African Caribbean communities to improve the Black service user experience and reduce the over representation of Black people at the coercive end of psychiatric care.

Please note: Black Mental Health UK does not provide help, treatment, counselling, care service or advice for those in crisis. They are not able to discuss individual cases.
