Along with whole school INSET, or input for groups of schools, Headteachers and senior leaders (see groups section for more information), Jonathan also offers a refreshing perspective on curriculum design.
Whether it’s a complete curriculum overhaul, or a year group that’s in need of some inspiration, Jonathan is able to provide as much or as little help as you need.
Guerrilla Curriculum is a bespoke skills based curriculum model that combines essential core skills and knowledge with the opportunity for children to think and learn creatively.
"The curriculum is truly inspiring, exciting and thoroughly engaging. It captures pupils’ interests and opens up for them a world of possibilities. Its careful design skilfully develops pupils’ knowledge, skills and understanding across a wide range of different subjects. The curriculum motivates pupils because they have a real purpose and focus for learning."
Each term is themed, and contains topics that allow teachers the opportunity to design relevant, engaging, creative and authentic learning experiences for their children.
The Guerrilla Curriculum offers a broad and balanced approach to primary education, giving children the opportunity and space to develop a genuine depth of knowledge whilst also allowing them to develop the skills they need as 21st century learners.
The Guerrilla Curriculum comes fully supported with a range of resources, including training materials, planning documents and skills progression grids.
"The Guerrilla Curriculum is the most complete and well-rounded curriculum model I have seen. It has provided us with the opportunity to create purposeful and exciting learning that is very much our own. Jonathan worked with the entire staff to develop units of work that have given us a curriculum that we are confident in delivering. It has a well thought out structure and content that is engaging and exciting for both pupils and teachers. The skills progression grids have allowed staff the freedom to plan imaginative and authentic units of work that are backed up by rigorous curriculum coverage. The outcomes of the Guerrilla Curriculum have completely transformed the learning in our school - our children are genuinely excited by their learning and can’t wait to find out what their next project will be."
