Advice about the 2013/14 school year

The DFE has confirmed its intention to disapply elements of the National Curriculum for a time limited period. The DFE says that this is in order to give schools greater flexibility to manage the transition from the existing National Curriculum to the new one. This will mean that while maintained schools will still be required to teach National Curriculum subjects, they will not be required to teach the current programmes of study (or use attainment targets as part of statutory assessment arrangements) from September 2013 for the following subjects:

PSHE Announcement Does Not Provide Clarity on Primary Citizenship

 

The DfE report into PSHE and the subsequent announcement by Elizabeth Truss, Education Minister has not seemingly resolved the position of Citizenship within PSHE at Key Stage 1 and 2.

TAKE ACTION TO TELL MICHAEL GOVE, NICK GIBB AND YOUR MP ABOUT CITIZENSHIP EDUCATION

 

We believe that education about rights and responsibilities, the law and democracy should be fundamental elements in every young person’s education and in the coming months will be asking all political parties to commit to keeping citizenship education in the curriculum, no matter what kind of reform happens in the future.

We want to show politicians that teachers really care about citizenship and that it can make a positive difference in young people’s lives and in schools.

You can do two things to help us with this.
