Although consultation with schools on the Draft Primary Curriculum Framework was postponed in late 2020, NCCA has continued to gather responses from education stakeholders, interest groups and others wishing to share their thoughts on the proposals for redeveloping the primary curriculum.
Consultation with primary schools and special schools will reopen on October 19th with the relaunch of our online questionnaire, written submission form and consultation workshop materials for schools. Continuing into early 2022, NCCA looks forward to hearing from and engaging directly with teachers, school leaders, children and parents through online seminars and focus group events. Where possible, and subject to public health advice, NCCA will hold face-to-face consultation events. Consultation with children will also take place throughout this period.
NCCA acknowledges and sincerely thanks all those who have already shared their views on the proposals in the draft framework. All feedback to-date and that gathered in the months ahead, will inform the finalisation of the framework. This framework will then guide the redevelopment of the primary curriculum.
There will be further updates on the consultation with schools in the weeks and months ahead. If you would like to receive these updates, visit our website www.ncca.ie/primary and follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
