DFE Publishes Schools White Paper

As you may have seen, the DfE published the new Schools White Paper recently. This is the DfE press release: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/schools-white-paper-delivers-real-action-to-level-up-education

The White Paper includes a commitment for a cultural education plan by 2023:

64. As part of a richer school week, all children should be entitled to take part in sport, music and cultural opportunities. These opportunities are an essential part of a broad and ambitious curriculum, and support children’s health, wellbeing and wider development, particularly as we recover from the pandemic. The government will publish updated plans to support sport and music education in 2022, and will publish a cultural education plan in 2023, working with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and Arts Council England. This will include how best to support young people who wish to pursue careers in our creative and cultural industries. We will build on our high-quality citizenship education by supporting the National Youth Guarantee, promoting volunteering and expanding access to the Duke of Edinburgh Award and Cadet Schemes.
