National Curriculum Review - Draft Primary Programme of Study

11 June 2012

The Department for Education has just released the draft National Curriculum  for primary mathematics. The Department for Education has asked ACME to lead on gathering views from the mathematics and wider education community. In the next months, ACME, jointly with the NCETM, will use a variety of means and processes to facilitate discussion with and within the community.

A consultation questionnaire on the draft National Curriculum will be available very soon. We would encourage you to respond to this questionnaire and to disseminate it widely to your colleagues.

  • A dedicated NCETM discussion forum for teachers and others will be available to discuss the proposed National Curriculum. To participate, you will need to register to the NCETM portal and join the discussion forum  to participate. 
  • eSeminars will be held in the evening of the 27 and 28 June 2012. More details will follow soon. Please consult the ACME and NCETM website for updates.
  • A workshop will be held on 3rd July to discuss some aspects of the proposed National Curriculum.
  • During the consultation, ACME, along with the NCETM, will work on providing consolidated feedback to the Department for Education based on thoughts gathered through this process.

This process will inform any changes to the content in readiness for the full public consultation towards the end of this year.

Please do pass this message on to others who may be interested in participating in this process and consult the ACME website ( or the NCETM website ( for further updates and information.
