The New National Curriculum - Anthony Roper School
The New National Curriculum An introduction to parents The Anthony Roper Primary School 27th April 2015 The Government announced plans to overhaul the National Curriculum in 2013. The main aim was to raise standards, particularly as the UK was slipping down international student assessment league tables. Inspired by what is taught in the worlds most successful school systems, as well as in the best UK schools, the new curriculum was designed to produce productive, creative and well educated students. Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education at the time, said the new curriculum would be more demanding.
David Cameron described it as rigorous, engaging and tough. Although the new curriculum is intended to be more challenging, the content is actually slimmer than the previous curriculum, focusing on essential core subject knowledge. According to the Government the new curriculum does not tell teachers how to teach, but gives them the freedom to shape the curriculum to their pupils needs. The National Curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.
