Review of cultural education finds that provision is patchy

The government-commissioned Review of Cultural Education in England has been released. The independent review was commissioned at the request of the Secretary of State for Education and the Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries. Darren Henley, Managing Director of Global Radio's national classical music station, Classic FM, was asked to consider how to ensure the ambition that every child should experience a wide variety of high quality cultural experiences, ensuring both quality and best use of public investment.

The review recommends that all children should have an entitlement to receive a set amount of cultural education during their years in school. This would mean more exposure to subjects such as drama, arts, dance and music.

The report found that cultural education was "patchy" and acknowledged that there was a "good deal of concern" about the future of arts subjects in the curriculum.
