This area of the site carries information about teaching and learning: teaching strategy, teaching and learning tips, learning psychology, and links to thousands of resources. New content is being added all the time, so come back regularly for ideas to keep your lessons up to date.

Under Resource materials you will find over 2000 lesson plans, materials on various topics and themes, and information and strategy on delivering each Key Stage of the curriculum. There are also links to museums, charities and other resources in your local community.

Find information relating to teaching your subject or keep an eye on this area: all curriculum subjects will be covered over the coming months. Teachers of Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 pupils can find updates, information and links in our primary and secondary resources pages.

All the case studies on TeacherNet have now been collected in one place. The database comprises a wide range of topics, all written by education practitioners. Other new and innovative approaches to raising standards are showcased in the School in Focus area.

Access an assembly plan for each day of the school year, in TeacherNet's database which can be searched by year group or subject.

Teachers TV was launched in February 2005 with a wealth of information and resources for both new and experienced teachers, including curriculum-based programmes for use in the classroom.

Information on managing medicines in schools (supports pupils who are absent from school on medical grounds, or have medical conditions) is available in our Whole-school issues section.
