Education Minister publishes guidance for schools on curriculum planning

1 Mins read

Education Minister Peter Weir has today published guidance for schools on curriculum planning for the 2020/21 academic year.

The guidance provides advice and support to schools as they consider how to tailor and adapt delivery of the curriculum to support recovery when pupils return for the new academic year.

Education Minister Peter Weir said: “I want to thank all the teachers and staff who are working so hard to ensure our pupils are supported at this time. I hope that schools and teachers will find the guidance provided by the Department helpful to support pupils’ learning as they plan for the new term.

“The Northern Ireland Curriculum is designed to have limited prescription, giving schools as much flexibility as possible in what they choose to teach, for how long and how often and to use approaches that best suit their pupils. In these unprecedented times schools, therefore, have the freedom to provide lessons to suit the unique circumstances of their school community.

“My Department, working with the Education Authority and other key stakeholders, will provide additional operational guidance for schools on curriculum development during the coming weeks and months.”

Guidance for schools on Curriculum Planning 2020/21 can be accessed on the Department’s website at https://www.education-ni.gov.uk/publications/circular-202006-curriculum-planning-202021
