Around 10,000 curriculum video lessons offered to schools for free

Around 10,000 lessons covering most of the national curriculum are to be created and recorded by the Oak National Academy and will be made freely available to schools next year.

The online learning hub launched in April with £300,000 in Department for Education (DfE) funding and has been supporting schools during the Covid-19 lockdown by creating video lessons across a range of subjects and for every year group from Reception to year 10.

The initiative is now to continue into the 2020/21 academic year with a further £4.34 million in DfE funding as well as support from the Mohn Westlake Foundation.

Ministers see the move as providing a fall back should there be a second spike in infections this autumn or winter, or should local outbreaks force schools into further lockdowns.
