Abstract: The Rose Review makes a number of worthy recommendations deserving implementation, especially those advising a gradual, three-phase shift towards subject-based studies from play-based practices. But Rose's attempt to make the Primary Curriculum manageable does not and probably could not succeed. The content-led nature of a Rose-Reviewed curriculum, its implications for teaching and learning, key proposals on core skills, alongside what we can expect of future assessment policy would, very likely, sustain a heavy workload for teachers. What is argued is the need for a flexible curricular framework rather than burdensome content, allowing young pupils to progress at their own level and pace, where quality learning matters more than standard assessment and coverage.
