Back to Basics – curriculum review

The Government’s ‘back to basics’ review of the curriculum started last week to decide on the future status of the eight non-core subjects and develop study programmes in English, Maths, Science and PE (statutory). There are fears that citizenship could be a casualty of the review. The Government wants the new curriculum (to be taught from 2013) to give schools ‘greater freedom to construct their own programmes of study outside the National Curriculum and develop approaches to learning and study which complement it’.

Phase 1 Timings: Autumn 2011 – Ministers consider recommendations; Early 2012 – public consultation on core subjects for teaching from Sept 2013

Phase 2 Timings: non-core subjects reviewed by Autumn 2012; public consultation early 2013, teaching from Sept 2014
