Here at Camp Hill we are embarking on a new journey in our curriculum as we are beginning to embed the New National Curriculum 2014.
1.1 Every state-funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and
broadly based and which:
1.2 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.
1.3 All state 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 and sex and relationship education to pupils in secondary education.
1.4 Maintained schools in England are legally required to follow the statutory
national curriculum which sets out in programmes of study, on the basis of
key stages, subject content for those subjects that should be taught to all
pupils. All schools must publish their school curriculum by subject and
academic year online.
1.5 All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic
education (PSHE), drawing on good practice. Schools are also free to include
other subjects or topics of their choice in planning and designing their own
programme of education.
1.1 The national curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential
knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. It introduces pupils to
the best that has been thought and said; and helps engender an appreciation
of human creativity and achievement.
1.2 The national curriculum is just one element in the education of every child.
There is time and space in the school day and in each week, term and year
to range beyond the national curriculum specifications. The national
curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers
can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of
pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school
1.3 Pupils of compulsory school age in community and foundation schools,
including community special schools and foundation special schools, and in
voluntary aided and voluntary controlled schools, must follow the national
curriculum. It is organised on the basis of four key stages and twelve
subjects, classified in legal terms as ‘core’ and ‘other foundation’ subjects.
1.4 The Secretary of State for Education is required to publish programmes of
study for each national curriculum subject, setting out the ‘matters, skills
and processes’ to be taught at each key stage. Schools are free to choose
how they organise their school day, as long as the content of the national
curriculum programmes of study is taught to all pupils.
