The Historical Association has recently published its survey of schools’ reaction to the implementation of new history national Curriculum. Its findings are very predictable, but I thought you might like to see them anyway.
Teachers are responding enthusiastically and robustly to curriculum change ( many report enjoying teaching Stone Age to Iron Age)
Teachers feel under-resourced to deliver the history curriculum (especially with the ‘new’ topics)
The 2015 survey reveals a continuing lack of financial support and training for history in primary schools.
The status of history has remained largely unchanged by the introduction of a new curriculum.
Over half of KS2 teachers continue teaching topics that are no longer part of th National Curriculum such as Tudors, Victorians and especially World War Two.
