Democratic Life would like to thank everyone who responded to the DFE consultation on the proposed secondary curriculum. We know well over a hundred of you used our handy response form and many others have told us they have submitted responses by email. Thank you for taking the time to make your views known about Citizenship.
What happens next
The DFE will be analysing responses over the coming weeks and preparing final versions of the programmes of study. Once approved by ministers, these will be ‘laid’ before parliament. We expect the revised National Curriculum to be published and disseminated to schools by the autumn of 2013, for first teaching from September 2014.
We will keep in touch with the DFE and keep you up to date with the details and timeline as more clarity emerges.
Thank you again for supporting Citizenship!
