1. Towards a New Primary Curriculum

2. Standards in English primary education: the international evidence - Whetton, Chris; Ruddock, Graham; Twist, Liz
This review examines international survey evidence on the performance of English children of primary school age in relation to those from other countries. It starts by setting out the context of these international surveys and specifies those which are discussed here. It examines the methodological basis of the surveys, noting criticisms and problems, before considering the survey findings in mathematics, reading and science. The strengths and limitations of the data are assessed, and implications for the future international monitoring of educational standards are identified.

4. Standards and quality in English primary schools over time: the national evidence - Tymms, Peter; Merrell, Christine
This survey concentrates on changes in standards and quality in English primary schools. ‘Standards’ are taken to mean the levels attained rather than the levels which are set as expected. ‘Quality’ is taken to mean a judgment about the level attained against an implicit or explicit view of what is appropriate. Levels of academic attainment (mathematics and reading) form the mainstay of work which has been carried out, and of this review, but seven separate areas are set out which form a complete structure for monitoring, of which academic attainment is just one part. Generally, mathematics and reading standards have remained...

6. The quality of learning: assessment alternatives for primary education - Harlen, Wynne
Why and how we assess our pupils has an enormous impact on their educational experience and consequently on how and what they learn. This paper provides a critical review of the assessment system in England in the light of evidence from research and practice. It begins by considering the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of assessment and then, in section 3, describes how the various purposes and uses of assessment are met in England, in the other countries of the UK and in France, Sweden and New Zealand. In the fourth section alternative methods of conducting pupil assessment for different purposes are...

8. Primary Workforce Management and Reform - Burgess, Hilary
This report provides an overview of the impact of policies upon professional workforce management, reform and support and assesses recent developments in England and Wales and elsewhere in the UK. A brief comparison with the USA provides a global context for understanding key issues that impact upon teachers and other professionals in primary schools.

10. Primary Teachers: initial teacher education, continuing professional development and school leadership development - McNamara, Olwen; Webb, Rosemary; Brundrett, Mark
This survey of the teacher education and training in England has been structured into three sections covering the key areas of initial teacher education (ITE), continuing professional development (CPD) and the training of education leaders. The final section looks across these and draws out some common themes. Each of the authors has chosen to work on one of the three areas reviewed and contributed to the analysis which gave rise to the themes and issues identified in the concluding comments. The survey covers an area so extensive as to make systematic review an unrealistic prospect; whole books, indeed entire series of books, have been written on...

12. Primary Schools: the professional environment - Jones, Liz; Pickard, Andy; Stronach, Ian
The authors of this report for the Primary Review were charged with presenting an assessment of the current state of the professional environment of the English primary school. We decided to overview the salient issues, and then to identify a number of central themes whose understanding seemed to us to be of central importance. It was clear also that sustained empirical research of life inside primary schools, or indeed any schools, of the kind published in the 1980s heyday of ethnographical sociology is now limited. We found that what empirical studies did exist had also become more theoretically impoverished over the years. Atheoretical and simplistically evaluational...

14. Primary Schools and Other Agencies - Barron, Ian; Holmes, Rachel; MacLure, Maggie; Runswick-Cole, Katherine
This report examines the shifting relationships that have obtained over the past four decades between education and the various agencies with which primary school children in the UK may come into contact. The report deals primarily with agencies concerned with health, social care and the law. Based on an analysis of key policy texts, legislation and primary research studies, the report describes the changing configurations of provision for children deemed to be in need of support or intervention from agencies beyond the school. It identifies major shifts of policy and practice, culminating in the wide-reaching reforms of the post-1997 Labour...

16. Children's Lives Outside School and their Educational Impact - Mayall, Berry
The Primary Review is being carried out in the context of a number of theoretical and policy-relevant developments in the study of children and childhood. Whilst Plowden (1967) could confidently, it seems, rely on Piagetian concepts – a universalist vision of the child as individual explorer programmed to develop through identifiable stages – more recently other ideas within developmental psychology and sociology and the rights movement have come to prominence. All three conceptualise children as active participants in social relations and learning.

18. Parenting, Caring and Educating - Muschamp, Yolande; Wikeley, Felicity; Ridge, Tess; Balarin, Maria
In this survey of published research we review changing patterns in the structure of the families and identify trends in parenting and caring for today’s generation of primary school children. We reveal how the reduction in the number of children born, the increase in the proportion of lone parents and the increasing age at which women have their first child have resulted in greater diversity of family forms, and parenting and caring practices. The impact of these changes on primary education is discussed through a review of the impact of government policy in relation to the role of parents and...

20. Children and their Primary Schools: pupils' voices - Robinson, Carol; Fielding, Michael
This report draws on evidence from published empirical studies which explore pupils’ and, in a minority of cases, former pupils’ perspectives on aspects of their primary education. The overall aim of the report is to summarise and assess the findings and explore their implications for the future of primary education in the United Kingdom (UK). The report concentrates on findings from some key UK based studies, as well as findings from a range of other UK based studies which have focused on eliciting pupils’ own perspectives of their experiences at primary school. Findings from studies from outside the UK are not, therefore, included in this report, nor...
