Cultural Learning Alliance survey on drama in schools

The Cultural Learning Alliance wants your opinion on the place of Drama in the National Curriculum, to feed into discussions with The Department of Education (DfE).

Posted: 09/04/2012

The DfE has published a draft of the new English Primary Curriculum and is asking for stakeholder responses from the sector. This is in advance of more formal consultation in the autumn.

In contrast to the current Curriculum, the new programme makes no specific mention of Drama. It is likely that there will be no statutory provision for Drama in primary schools in the future.

The CLA has been in discussion with the DfE on this issue for some months. As a result officials have asked the CLA to survey the Alliance on the place of Drama in the National Curriculum and to present them with a summary of our thoughts.

Everyone with an opinion on this matter is strongly urged to take part in the online survey and to send it out through your networks.

The CLA is asking for responses as soon as possible, but by 10:00am on the 7th of September at the latest.

A full briefing note to help you with this has now been uploaded to the CLA website.

As ever, please do contact the CLA on info@culturallearningalliance if you have any questions or if you would like to talk this through.

"Just to say a huge thanks ... I am looking forward to progressing with this project thanks to your support, advice and guidance"
