Practical Action's response to National Curriculum Review
In the recent report ‘The Framework for the National Curriculum’ produced by a panel for the National Curriculum review, it was recommended that D&T and Citizenship should be removed from the National Curriculum and form part of the Basic Curriculum.
At Practical Action we believe down grading the position of these subjects will lead to fragmented delivery of essential subject knowledge and skills.
Without a formal programme of study for these subjects, we cannot ensure that bigger picture thinking, including sustainability and global issues are delivered an entitlement for all pupils within a basic curriculum.
If you agree with us that D&T should remain in the National Curriculum please send your response by email to the DfE Review Team. before the end of February.
