what are the statutory planning documents at the moment?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by scoobyhen, Jan 21, 2012.

  1. this is probably a really silly question but find myself wondering what are they? NC was, qca, nls and nns were not but what is now? Is it just me or do the government constantly change what we should and should not be teaching and how we should be teaching and yet there is no definitive document or source fo information anywhere? Is MFl still compulsory at ks2?

    The National Curriculum remains the only statutory document for planning
     
  3. thank you i thought so too but different people say different things and it is difficult to know for sure when there is a lack of information available.

    The only statutory document has ever been the NC and that has been unchanged since 2000.

    the NLS was introduced in 1996 and provided guidance for the literacy hour it was never statutory. The NNS was introduced the following year for maths both were replaced by the frameworks which have now been archived too.
    The Creative Curriculum is a label which means different things to different people so there isn't a real answer.
