Teachers promised freedom

"We have thought for some time that the curriculum was too content-driven with no time for teachers to develop concepts," says assistant principal Graham Allen.

"Schools need to develop opportunities for independent learning. When the national curriculum came in there was an emphasis on discrete subject areas, and teachers had to make sure specific content was covered. We are now moving back to topic-based approach to learning."

Under the changes, the curriculum will be less prescriptive, content will be cut, and teachers will be expected to innovate and use their skills creatively.

Individual subjects will remain, with a continued strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy, but there will be a more thematic approach to teaching in other areas. So elements of drama may be incorporated into history, maths in to geography and so on.
