As you will be aware, several national changes are being introduced this academic year, the first being a new National Curriculum which was devised to raise standards. The aim is to produce productive, creative and well educated children. Although the new curriculum is intended to be more challenging, the content is actually slimmer than the old curriculum, focusing on essential core subject knowledge and excellence.
For most children, these changes took effect from September 2014, but children in Years 2 and 6 will follow the existing programmes of study until September 2015 in English, Maths and Science.
Hopefully, you will find this guide useful in providing an outline of the current curriculum and therefore help you in best supporting your child. Further information regarding the school's assessment system will follow.
