Primary Passions

After over a year of haggling, the Government has finally launched the official consultation on the new Primary curriculum.

It's mainly good news, and the arts has a real opportunity to raise the quality and quantity of provision for 5-11 year olds.

Strange, however, that there is no attempt at all nationally to consult with pupils on their curriculum. Let's hope that schools do this anyway, but hopefully somebody somewhere will create some national tools to help them.
years ago, ippr and the RSA attempted to create a Primary Baccalaureate. We received lots of interest but no funding. My article on the idea focuses on how to give primary aged children a greater sense of choice and control over their learning.
