Curriculum changes pushed back to 2014
19 Dec 2011
The overhaul of the National Curriculum in England is to be delayed by a year, the education secretary has confirmed.
A written statement on Monday says the review of core subjects will now be implemented in Autumn 2014.
Michael Gove said:
The longer timescale will allow for further debate with everyone interested in creating a genuinely world-class education system.
The pushed-back timetable means that instead of introducing changes for English, maths, science and PE in 2013, the revised curriculums for all subjects will be introduced in 2014.
One area the Framework for the National Curriculum examines is the benefits of supportinging oral language. The report states that there is evidence of a connection between oral development, cognitive development and educational attainment.
