No doubt about the big childhood and education story for this post; today sees the publication of Sir Jim Rose's final report on the primary Curriculum, which the DCSF commissioned back in January 2008. The report details a review of the existing Curriculum currently used by primary schools, and contains recommendations for how teaching should be delivered in the future.
Press coverage so far has highlighted two themes to emerge from the review; the first is that the Curriculum itself may be slimmed down to enable teachers to have more freedom in selecting lessons, while there is also to be an increased emphasis on using technology.
The final report is available online now. Follow this link which will take you to a page where you can download the final review, as well as a host of supporting documents including an executive summary.
