Cross the threshold and seize a new and improved curriculum.
Many teachers will already be thinking about the significant curriculum changes just around the corner. I admit that I have met some previous curriculum changes with a response something like world-weariness – worsening with each successive hasty change and token relabelling. I am, however, intent on meeting this new national curriculum with more vigour and to seize the opportunity it presents, rather than simply complain and deride its origins. You realise after a few years teaching that national curricula don’t fundamentally change or dictate teaching and learning, teachers change teaching and learning. We do not need to passively receive this latest curriculum iteration – we can actively shape it.
