The NCCA established a Schools Forum consisting of a network of primary schools, special schools, post-primary schools and preschools from across the country. This has now been extended to 60 schools and together, these represent the rich diversity of school contexts in Ireland. In the Forum, teachers, school leaders and preschool practitioners come together to guide and help shape the primary curriculum review and redevelopment. In the words of one teacher nominee, the Schools Forum provides a space to ponder big questions such as what we value in education, what its purpose is, how and what children should be taught, what’s important in our current context and what the future might demand.
