I’sure Gove has no idea what problems he is causing my insisting that all pupils at KS2 are taught the new curriculum from 2014. I have worked with numerous schools that have been tied in knots trying to avoid pupils repeating topics from the old curriculum again within the new curriculum, often within a couple of years. When I am trying to encourage schools to come up with a clear rationale for their new curriculum, the transition is very messy indeed and will make little sense to the parents. Why the dreadful rush? A phased introduction would have ensured real quality: now there is a lot of damage limitation going on and it makes a mockery of trying to bring the very coherence that Gove is asking for.
