CBSE adopts National Curriculum Framework for Foundation Stage from Session 2023-24


NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education has asked the schools affiliated with CBSE to implement the National Curriculum Framework for Foundation Stage (NCFFS) from the current academic session 2023-24.
“CBSE has adopted the National Curriculum Framework for Foundational Stage – 2022 and the new structure of five-year education at the foundational stage (from class Nursery to class II) will be introduced in the session 2023-24 in those CBSE schools which offer education at the foundational stage to students in the age group of 3-8 years,” reads CBSE circular.
The National Curriculum Framework for Foundational Stage 2022 was developed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) as per the directive of National Education Policy 2020. It aims at serving as a guideline for schools and teachers to design and develop curricula, syllabi, and teaching materials that align with national educational goals.In the official notice, CBSE has advised the schools offering foundational or preparatory education to adhere to the recommendations regarding curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and other areas described in detail in the NCFFS-2022.
The National Curriculum Framework for Foundational Stage, NCF-FS includes many examples and illustrations which play a critical role in its implementation. “They help to clarify abstract concepts, reinforce learning, and make new ideas more accessible to practising teachers. Myriad examples are aptly incorporated to enhance understanding, foster engagement, and elaborate concrete ways concepts can be implemented in day-to-day teaching. So, it is critical that teachers look at these illustrations and contextualize them according to the needs and contexts of children,” the notice further reads.

In another major update, CBSE has warned the schools from starting their academic session before April 1. The Board has strictly objected to the schools’ decision to start the academic session early as it leaves little or no time for extracurricular activities such as Life Skills, Value Education, Health and Physical Education, Work Education, and Community Service, which are just as important as academics.
