This booklet is the second in a series of NFER reports to be published under the thematic title, Real Curriculum. By focusing on pupils' perspectives of what learning in the classroom is like, the series attempts to look beyond intended and official versions of the curriculum to the reality of learners' experiences of the whole curriculum. In so doing, it is hoped the reports will offer analyses that will help teachers, school managers and educational policy makers continue to develop curricular experiences that really meet the needs of child and young people in the 21st century.
