We are required to teach a broad and balanced curriculum including the National Curriculum subjects of mathematics, English, science, information and communication technology, design technology, physical education, history, geography, art, music and religious education.
The National Curriculum sets out the knowledge and skills that every child has a right to learn. It is a framework that helps to ensure that children are taught in a way that is balanced and manageable, but also challenging.
The framework provides standards that measure how well children are doing in each subject.
The Foundation Stage happens before the National Curriculum. It is a framework for children’s learning in nursery or reception class.
