Long term planning - resources

For some subjects, this will include a list of key reading material, for others it will refer to a variety of other significant resources such as concrete materials, buildings, habitats, places of interest in the locality and Mathematics/History trails the school has established.

The resource section could also outline the support that could be provided by learning support/resource teacher, special needs assistants, language teacher, visitors and so on.
