This document sets out the vision for the future of primary education built on what has already achieved. The vision is for a sector where high standards are obtained through a rich, varied and exciting curriculum which develops children in a range of ways.
High standards and a broad and rich curriculum go hand in hand. Literacy and numeracy are vital building blocks, and it is right to focus attention on them. But it is important that children have a rich and exciting experience at primary school, learning a wide range of things in a wide range of different ways. The new Primary Strategy will support teachers and schools across the whole curriculum, building on the lessons of the Literacy and Numeracy Strategies, but moving on to offer teachers more control and flexibility. It will focus on building up teachers own professionalism and capacity to teach better and better, with bespoke support they can draw on to meet their particular needs. There will be extra support and challenge for the schools that need it most.
