This is a practical guide, rooted in best practice, to designing a wide and engaging primary curriculum. Schools are struggling to balance the statutory requirements of a National Curriculum with their desire to provide the wide, engaging and exciting curriculum that they know children need. Concerns about standards often lead to a narrowing of the curriculum and many schools lack the confidence and approach to design that would enable them to resolve what seems like an impossible dilemma. In this authoritative yet engaging book, Brian Male looks at how schools can meet the requirements of a National Curriculum and yet be flexible enough to meet the needs, interests and concerns of pupils, to be rooted in their lives and localities and to give scope for teachers to use their own creativity. "The Curriculum Design Handbook - Primary Edition" is a practical guide on how to design a curriculum that will engage children's interest, excite their imaginations and at the same time provide them with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to live successfully in the 21st Century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I have always regarded Brian as the guru of curriculum design - his ability to translate complex issues into the practical is amazing. He has dedicated his life to ensuring that our children are rewarded with the curriculum they deserve; rich, dynamic, contextual and relevant. This guide is a culmination of his work, his thinking, his genius. Please read it, use it and help to make the greatest difference to curriculum and ultimately, our children!
