Curriculum consultation closes; thanks for all the support

Thank you to everyone who fed into the UK Government's National Curriculum consultation, which closed yesterday.

Working with campaign group Democratic Life, we fielded well over a hundred submissions on behalf of citizenship education.

We must now wait and see how successful we have been in strengthening the proposed National Curriculum and citizenship in particular.

The Department for Education will analyse responses over the next few weeks, before presenting them to Parliament.

The new National Curriculum is due to be sent to schools this autumn, for teaching from September 2014.

Thank you again to everyone who responded to the consultation.
