  • Two exceptions to the teaching of the new

  • These pupils will be taught the pre-2014
    curriculum objectives still for this year in

  • Primary National Curriculum 2014
  • The curriculum framework states that
  • Every state-funded school must offer a
    curriculum which is balanced and broadly based
    and which
  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental
    and physical development of pupils at the school
    and of society
  • prepares pupils at the school for the
    opportunities, responsibilities and experiences
    of later life
  • The school curriculum comprises all learning and
    other experiences that each school plans for its
    pupils. The national curriculum forms one part of
    the school curriculum.

Primary National Curriculum 2014 All schools
should make provision for personal, social,
health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on
good practice. All schools are also required to
make provision for a daily act of collective
worship and must teach religious education to
pupils at every key stage. Schools are also free
to include other subjects or topics of their
choice in planning and designing their own
programme of education.
  • Primary National Curriculum 2014
  • How is the curriculum organised?
  • The curriculum is organised into 4 Key Stages-
    Key Stages 1-4. In our Primary schools we cover
    Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
  • The curriculum has 12 subjects, classified in
    legal terms as core and other foundation
