The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.
The national curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘key stages’ (KS). At the end of each key stage, the teacher will formally assess your child’s performance
Early Years Foundation Stage – Reception (age 4-5)
Key Stage 1 – Years 1&2 (age 5-7)
Key Stage 2 – Years 3-6 (age 7- 11)
