NAHT is working to ensure that the curriculum supports the learning, progress and success of all pupils and is not distorted or restricted by external pressures of testing and accountability.
NAHT supports the principle that a broad and balanced curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
That is why NAHT is campaigning for:
- A curriculum and qualification framework which is fit for purpose.
- Schools to be equipped to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum
- Change to Government policy that narrows the curriculum.
- A stable, coherent, valid and proportionate approach to assessment for all pupils, including those with SEND.
- Building the assessment capacity of staff in all schools to ensure effectiveness of assessment practice.
