New National Curriculum Programme of Study

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by scentless_apprentice, Sep 14, 2011.

  1. What's the situation with this at the moment?
    Is the review still being conducted, or are things in place?
    Forgive the naivety of the question.

    The timescale for the end of the NC Review remains unchanged. However, the draft Programmes of Study in mathematics which were supposed to be made available for scrutiny between 5th and 21st September by ACME on the NCETM portal never materialised. It is disappointing that ACME did not even consider it necessary to update their website:
    The DfE is still promising to allow mathematics teachers a chance to comment. There are murmurs about sometime later in the Autumn (possibly).

    Sounds to me as though the government have rejected them...

    A post on the NCETM website at https://www.ncetm.org.uk/news/34529 says:
    "The Department has decided to delay this pre-consultation phase until the Programmes of Study have been developed to a more advanced stage. The intention remains to make drafts available to the community prior to the formal consultation in early 2012, but in order to make this process more meaningful it is expected that this will now take place later in the autumn. The overall timeline for the National Curriculum Review and its implementation remains the same, with formal consultation early next year.

    The Department has asked ACME to pass on its apologies for any inconvenience caused."


  5. This is an important message from the NCETM and the Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) providing details of an opportunity for you to comment on the draft primary Programme of Study for mathematics.
    MG in his introduction to the drafts said "Our draft programmes of
    study are the starting point for a debate on content not the
    So, the NCETM and ACME are working together to facilitate discussion with
    the education community to bring in subject expertise in an open and transparent
    way to support the development of a National Curriculum with Programmes
    of Study as good as they can be, and with input from the best in their
    field. The input received from the mathematics community via ACME will
    be used to inform the public consultation on the just-released draft
    primary Programmes of Study.

    ACME plans to make use of the NCETM portal to facilitate discussion, according to the following schedule:

    <ul class="content_list">[*]an ACME discussion forum
    on the NCETM portal will be open for a specified time for members of
    the community to debate relevant issues about the programmes of study[*]a simple questionaire will be available for those who wish to submit their comments direct to ACME and the NCETM[*]ACME will also hold a meeting in central London at which
    attendees will be asked their comments and views. The date for this is
    the 3 July
    [*]two online seminars will be held for those unable to make the
    face-to-face meetings, and we will ask people to express an interest in
    participating in this when registration for all these events opens in a
    few days. The dates for these are the evenings of 27 and 28 June[*]following this process, ACME and the NCETM will work on
    providing consolidated feedback to the Department for Education based on
    thoughts gathered through this consultation.[/LIST]
    Clearly the timetable will be very short and coincides with a busy
    time of year for teachers and others, but it represents an additional
    opportunity for the mathematics community to become more involved the
    consultation about the primary Programme of Study.

    Please do put this information in your diaries, and find out more now from NCETM and ACME. Please also pass this message
    on to others who may be interested in participating in this process.
