No doubt about the biggest education story today: the Primary Review (see this previous post for details) has published a two-part report on the curriculum. Although the Primary Review's final report is not due until later in the year, it is releasing its finding ons the curriculum early to contribute to the debate around Sir Jim Rose's 'official' curriculum review which is also due shortly.

Today's report has made headlines because of its conclusion that there is currently too much emphasis on literacy, numeracy and testing, at the expense of other subjects. A 4 page briefing outlining the report's context and findings is available here, while the report itself is divided into two sections. Part 1 identifies issues within the current curriculum provision and sets them into context, while Part 2 summarises this information and sets out proposals for reform. Further press reaction is available here.
