Citizenship curriculum under review
The UK government will be reviewing the status of citizenship as a National Curriculum subject, it was revealed today.
The Review Panel's terms of reference, published earlier this morning, sets out those subjects that risk losing their statutory place on the curriculum. They are:
- art and design;
- design and technology;
- information and communication technology (ICT);
- modern foreign languages (MFL);
In the meantime we are working with Democratic Life to campaign for citizenship to remain on the curriculum.
