Raising Expectations
  • The following slides give some examples of the
    statutory expectations set out in the new
    national curriculum programmes of study.
  • These are just a summary of examples and not
    exhaustive lists.
  • The statements are taken directly from the
    governments published national curriculum
    framework for all local authority maintained
    schools.
  • These are intended to give a flavour of the
    higher expectations now in place. All children
    will still need to work at an appropriate level
    for their individual needs.
