Developing a Culturally Inclusive Curriculum by Jane Bednall, Sharon Fell and Niv CuloraThis UKLA online professional development resource is designed to support schools in developing a culturally inclusive curriculum.
This is a chapter from the UKLA publication Literacy and Community: developing a primary curriculum through partnerships. It describes how a class teacher and a literacy consultant in a multilingual school in Birmingham developed a teaching sequence to explore identity and citizenship. The teacher, Katie Palmer, is now Deputy Head Teacher and Curriculum and Assessment Leader, and the school now has 356 children on roll. The book Literacy and Community invites readers to reflect on their own practice and the chapter ends with some prompt questions. If you find this article interesting, why not look in the UKLA bookshop for Literacy and Community for examples of partnerships with homes, parents and communities throughout the primary age range.

UKLA Occasional Paper: English as an Additional Language

Teachers need readily accessible guidance that identifies the ‘how, when and why of EAL’ and this occasional paper goes some way to doing that by presenting the current state of play for EAL according to both research and practice.
In July 2016 the CPRT published their 7th Research Briefing and Report papers entitled: The Digital Age and its Implications for Learning and Teaching in the Primary School. The report and the summary found within the research briefing, written by Professor Cathy Burnett provide a substantial but necessarily selective survey of research related to children’s lives in the digital age within and beyond school. Please access the resources here and here or download the pdfs on the right.Thanks to the CPRT for giving UKLA permission to share these resources.
The following is the response of The United Kingdom Literacy Association (UKLA) to the consultation initiated by the Education Committee Primary Assessment Inquiry 2016.
