It would be fair to say that it is to be welcomed that the DfE listened and acted on the feedback it recieved as part of the consultation.
In developing your curriculum for the next 12 months the Historical Association has organised in partnership with local HA's around the country, as series of workshops to highlight key elements of the changes as well as picking up on topical themes such as the Great War commemorations. The link can be found below.

Consultation on GCSE subject content and assessment objectives
With the changes to the National Curriculum, its easy to let slip the fact that GCSE critieria is also undergoing changes for 2015. Although the consultaion period is nearly over the link below guides you to the proposals and encourages you to consider how might impact on what you are currently doing.

Primary Curriculum to 2014
The Government have also announced the the National Curriculum for foundation subjects has been suspended for the period between September 2013 - August 2014.
This can be seen in many ways, but it can be used to review and revisit your schemes of work ahead of the 2014 changes. Courses to support you in developing your curriculum will be hosted at Kingston and advice documents produced. However, until then the following documents could prove useful to you in your planning.
