This brief reports on the set up and implementation of the curriculum programme pilot, as well as emerging and potential impacts of the programmes. The research aimed to investigate:

  • the benefits that complete curriculum programmes have, including whether they can improve pupil outcomes and reduce teacher workload
  • how they can be effectively shared and implemented between a wide range of schools
  • which implementation models for complete curriculum programmes work best, in which contexts and identify any barriers to implementation

This first stage research consisted of 117 survey responses and 48 interviews with school leaders and teachers involved in the pilots.
