The Guardian's QCDA special supplement

15 March 2010


QCDA has commissioned the pull-out, which will help schools and others think about the new primary curriculum and its implications.

This national publication details what the changes mean for teachers, school leaders, children and parents.

It highlights the opportunities the new curriculum offers - a more flexible, creative and holistic education providing deeper and richer learning experiences.

It does this through case studies and interviews with teachers, headteachers, educationalists, local authorities and subject associations.

The supplement shows exactly how QCDA has worked in collaboration with teachers, parents and children, as well as other agencies and educationalists, to create a new primary curriculum ready for implementation in September 2011.

A comprehensive programme of training, practical support and guidance has been put in place to help schools prepare for 2011 and respond to the changing curriculum. The supplement clearly outlines the role of each agency in that programme - QCDA, Becta, The National College and The National Strategies. It also focuses on how we are supporting local authorities with our new team of primary curriculum advisers and our resources on the national curriculum website.

The pull-out contains email addresses for comments or feedback that people wish to share.

If you want to find out more about the new primary curriculum this supplement really is a good place to start.
