holding answer 1 December 2011

We aim to reform the national curriculum so that it properly reflects the body of essential knowledge in key subjects, leaving teachers greater flexibility to use their professional judgment to design wider school curricula that best meet the needs of their pupils. Teachers will be able to use this increased flexibility to teach pupils about important topics such as internet safety.

We will be announcing our initial proposals for the national curriculum next year, following which there will be full public consultation before final decisions are made.
