The Government today released its anticipated report Cultural education in England: An independent review by Darren Henley.

A PDF of the review is available to read on the Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s website.

Some of the recommendations in Henley’s review include a new national youth dance company; national art and design Saturday clubs; ‘Heritage schools’; a new film academy for young people; more training and mentoring for new teachers and continuing professional development for experienced teachers; and a new cultural education partnership group made up of lottery distributors Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund, the British Film Institute, and other partners.

The Cultural Learning Alliance have been tweeting their response to the review today here, and will post their response on their website.

The Arts Council England have also posted their response to the review on their website.
