Abstract
Background: The purpose of the study is to measure the impact of curriculum development on pupil learning, teaching, and school organization and leadership.

Aims: The main aim of this development work is to improve pupil learning outcomes, measure progress towards success criteria, and use CPD approaches to change and improve adult practice.

Methods: The participants in this development work include teachers, teaching assistants, school leaders, Local Authority staff, leading teachers, and external consultants or advisers. Methods used included periodic teacher assessment, CPD approaches, collaboration with another teacher, post-lesson discussions, and uploading related information.

Findings: The main findings of the case study are that there was an overall impact on pupil learning, teaching, and school organization and leadership. Evidence of impact was measured through periodic teacher assessment, observation outcomes, teacher perceptions, and curriculum planning.

Implications: The findings of this development work suggest that improved teaching methods, resources, and CPD can lead to improved learning outcomes, increased pupil engagement, and better school organization and leadership.
