European Union: Primary Education

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 30 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what information about the EU his Department provides to primary schools for teaching purposes. (282424)

The Department does not provide information about the European Union to schools. The proposed new primary curriculum, which is being consulted on, will provide opportunities for children to learn about Europe and the European Union. For example pupils should be taught about links between local, British, European and world history.
