Sustainable Development in Action

A curriculum planning guide for schools


This free QCDA publication is aimed at school leaders and teachers of all subjects in all primary and secondary schools across England, and is a guide to building sustainable development into the learning experience.

It starts with a ‘big picture’ introduction explaining why sustainable development is important and how it fits into the curriculum, with key recommendations from Ofsted. There is then a section on practical activities to help shape learning for sustainable development in your school, built around three questions:

What are you trying to achieve?
How will you organise learning? and
How well are you achieving your aims?

This is followed by 10 case studies which use the same questions to show how diverse schools around the country have planned and integrated sustainable development into their curriculum.
