In 2011 the Government asked Darren Henley to carry out a review of cultural education in order to realise our ambition for every child to have the chance to experience a wide variety of high quality cultural experiences. The Government also asked him:
In response to the Review, the Government will develop a National Plan for Cultural Education in consultation with our key partners. This will set out the Government’s aspirations and priorities in this area. The Department for Education is also making £15 million available over the next three years to ensure that all pupils can engage in a variety of cultural activities of the highest quality.
The Review and the Government’s response are published today.
