The National Curriculum is organised on the basis of four key stages, the first two of which apply to Primary schools as follows:
Key Stage One – children aged 5 - 7 in year groups 1 – 2
Key Stage Two – children aged 7 – 11 in year groups 3 – 6
Children are assessed at the end of each Key Stage. Results of these assessments are published and individual children’s results are given to their parents at the end of year reports.
The National Curriculum, is divided into the core subjects – English, Mathematics, Science, and the Foundation Subjects – Design Technology, ICT, History, Geography, Art, Music and Physical Education.
