Education Policy and Structures
LEAN produced a New Landscapes Resource Sheet on education changes in 2012 for our New Landscapes arts education event in January 2012.
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Department for Education have responded to recomendations outlined in a report on Cultural Education in England.
The Cultural Learning Alliance publish regular updates on education policy on their website, and produce a regular newsletter.
The DCSF was renamed the Department for Education and formed on 12 May 2010. It is responsible for education and children's services.
The Department of Education released drafts of the new Primary National Curriculum in June 2012.
Information, guidance and tools that help schools design a curriculum can be found at National Curriculum online.
When working with schools, it is useful to understand how the school system in England works.
