National Strategies

The DSCF have gathered all the National Strategies for schools on to one site. As they say:
The National Strategies have brought together all their web materials to one place to make it easier to access resources, particularly through improved search capabilities.
The new area of the Standards Site has been developed taking account of user feedback and now provides a consistent experience, no matter what area of guidance you are looking for.
In addition the site enables users to:
communicate and share knowledge with colleagues;
create an account and build their own personal profile; and comment on all content and help shape the National Strategies' future work.

Users can also add bookmarks to personalise the content so that repeat visits take them to areas of specific personal interest.

You can find the site here.
