Our Partners & Associates



Core Knowledge UK provides British teachers, parents, grandparents and home educators with the educational resources to help children succeed. The Core Knowledge Sequence UK is a year-by-year outline of the specific and shared content and skills to be taught in Years 1 to 6. The Core Knowledge Sequence UK is the backbone of the Core Knowledge UK curriculum, a springboard for learning that provides the foundation for a sound, well-rounded education in the arts, humanities and sciences.

We use the Core Knowledge curriculum in two of our primary schools and our CEO Jo authored elements of the curriculum and books.

Parents and Teachers for Excellence is a campaign to empower parents but also teachers to understand what works in school-based education.

They promote a knowledge-based curriculum, more assessment and effective discipline policies.
