Alongside our foundation subjects training courses, we offer expert, tailored coaching for subject leaders to support whole-school curriculum design that meets the individual needs of each school.

From personalised subject leader coaching to a subject review, bespoke staff meeting(s) or support with curriculum mapping, we can add significant value to the leadership and teaching of foundation subjects in primary schools.


Why work with HFL for primary foundation subjects and curriculum support for your school?

Our team of curriculum advisers are all experienced teachers with excellent curriculum and subject knowledge.

Because our services are informed by many years of teaching and leadership experience, we have inherent knowledge of schools and a deep understanding of what makes for a successful curriculum.

We work with school leaders and their teaching staff to refine, develop and embed the curriculum spine of their choice, acting as a critical friend to support leaders to develop and implement the best primary curriculum for their setting.

Our support is tailored to meet the specific primary foundation subject needs of your school, but examples of where we might focus our time and expertise include:
  • Supporting subject leaders in understanding the role, what to focus on and actions to prioritise

  • Exploring and refining current curriculum mapping for a subject

  • Support and coaching for subject leader/s including joint monitoring and evaluation activities to identify next steps

  • Staff CPD/INSET

  • Co-developing and co-delivering subject focused staff CPD alongside the subject leader/s

All visits can be followed up with a comprehensive written report identifying strengths, areas to consider for development, and clear agreed actions.

Whether you’re looking for just a single visit (consultancy or staff meeting), or a longer piece of work over several dates, we would be happy to discuss what you would like to achieve.
