Very boring question about the now archived Secondary English Framework

Discussion in 'English' started by Feralgirl, Aug 25, 2011.

  1. OK, so the govt has removed the framework and interactive objectives tools from here: http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/toolsandinitiatives/nationalstrategies

    and archived it here:
    http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20110202093118/http://nationalstrategies.standards.dcsf.gov.uk/node/110234



    Does anyone have a heads-up or ideas about what will replace the framework? What about APP? And are OFSTED still expecting us to use/ refer to the framework in their new guidelines or are all bets off now that the government (according to the White Paper) aims to "reduce the amount of guidance and materials offered to schools. [Ministers] believe that schools should be free to use their own professional judgement about how they teach, without unnecessary prescription."



    I am interested because my (useless) HOD has no clue and at some point in the near future I am going to be applying for second in dept. jobs. Also, I'd just like to know for my own sense of curiosity!

  3. I believe, as far as APP goes, they aren't kicking that particular baby out with its bathwater, but they're not promoting it either. We're staying with it and with the AF because I get to choose and I think they're worthwhile. Ofsted, as far as I am aware, are big on differentiation and bit on independent learning.

    For the moment, anyway.
