The Durham Commission on Creativity and Education report recognises the importance of a knowledge-based curriculum in unlocking creativity and we will consider its recommendations.

The government believes that mastering the basics in any subject is at the heart of creativity. That is why we have reformed the primary and secondary curriculum so that pupils are equipped with the fundamental knowledge they need and the skills to use that knowledge to explore subjects in depth.
