…and so it begins… The National Curriculum Review
So, the government has announced that the new National Curriculum won’t be implemented until at least September 2014. The explanation for this delay being that it’s a process that shouldn’t be rushed; that’s hard to argue with, this is something that could make or break the lives of a generation. It does seem a little strange to even be thinking about a national curriculum when its implementation is likely to be at a time when the vast majority of secondary schools will be academies and, therefore, able to ignore it. That said, some of the information in the documents makes for reassuring reading (provided that we remember that these are just recommendations to the government, not policy or even intent).
