I attended the All Party Parliamentary Group National Curriculum meeting this week at Portcullis House in Westminster. The consultation for this draft closes on April 16th. It is clear that only ‘minor tweaks’ will be made to it, despite the protestations of all of the key Literacy Subject Groups in the UK regarding the lack of clear directives on the teaching of Speaking and Listening. It is not too late to make your voice heard, and it is clear that Ministers respond to larger numbers, so contact the DfE here.
