Lancashire Syllabus 2011 - Legal requirements
The syllabus has been streamed into the schools that use it. In these schools no password is required. It is protected by a password that has been provided to allow teachers from the schools that use it to access it outside schools. Schools will have been sent a launch pack in early May through the Lancashire Schools' bag. In the pack will be a letter with the password. This password will be changed regularly. This information will be available via the Lancashire schools' portal.
