We at National Parents Council (www.npc.ie) hope that you are having a great summer! We are mailing you today to inform you regarding some great news for parents and children alike from the Department of Education! The Primary Curriculum Framework was launched by the Minister on 9 March 2023.
This Framework is for all primary and special schools and will guide teachers and school leaders in their work to enhance learning, teaching and assessment for all children through the new curriculum.

Parents and guardians play a key role in their child’s education. The new curriculum for primary and special schools promotes a partnership approach which will encourage increased communication between schools and parents. This aims to keep parents and guardians informed of their child’s progress in school and the school informed of the child’s learning at home. For more information on the New Primary Curriculum, please visit: https://www.gov.ie/en/policy-information/027ad-primary-curriculum-framework/#
Parents and guardians have already influenced the content of the new curriculum and will continue to do so as more public consultations take place on the areas and subjects of the new curriculum in 2024. These consultations will be widely advertised by the Department of Education and the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA)- https://ncca.ie/en/updates-and-events/consultations/
We have attached a leaflet with more information on the framework along with this mail for your reference.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
