All the landmarks of British history are italicised in the new curriculum. This means that their status is as examples which do not have to be taught.
This optional status is confirmed in a letter from the School Curriculum and Assessment Authority and Ofsted, already in every school in the country. It states that "we would like to emphasise that it is very much up to individual schools to determine whether or not to use the italicised examples". So much for the triumph of traditionalists.
