New National Curriculum

 

 1.1      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, and
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

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.

 

 Aims

 

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
           curriculum.

 

Structure

 

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.
