The primary national curriculum review
You may be aware that a major review of what is taught in primary schools is underway.
The current National Curriculum dates back to 1988, when the then Conservative government introduced a standard curriculum for all schools to follow, replacing the traditional system of leaving schools and local authorities to decide what children should be taught.
The current Primary National Curriculum review, which is the fifth since the National Curriculum was first introduced, aims to address the concern that the curriculum is overloaded with content.
In this section of Mumsnet Learning, we aim to let you know what's happening and when, and what it means for your child's school in the meantime.
