The National Union of Teachers has welcomed the Welsh Government's announcement of a comprehensive review of the school curriculum and assessment.
It is positive that the Welsh Government have opted to have an independent review that will hopefully draw on the expertise of the teaching profession as a key stakeholder in this work.
It is also encouraging that the review will be looking at the curriculum from the Foundation Phase all the way through to key stage 4. This holistic approach is vitally important as you simply cannot look at any one aspect of the curriculum in isolation.
Getting this right is essential to creating a tool that teachers can interact with and utilise at a school level.
If the national curriculum has the support of the profession it can be a very powerful driver in creating innovative and engaging lessons that bring out the best in students. NUT Cymru look forward to providing evidence to this review.
