Curriculum

Volume 458: debated on Monday 12 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills whether it is the policy of his Department that the Key Stage 3 curriculum should be less knowledge based and more skills based. (124617)

Our policy is that the Key Stage 3 curriculum should ensure that young people secure the key discipline concepts, skills and knowledge to gain an understanding of the subjects they have studied. It should also equip young people with the wider personal, learning and thinking skills needed for everyday life.
