The National Curriculum
The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that each school plans for its pupils. Schools have flexibility in the structure of timetables, tailoring the curriculum to the particular needs of their pupils.
The National Curriculum is an important element of the school curriculum - a framework used by schools to ensure that teaching standards are universally consistent by setting out a clear, full and statutory element to leaning for all pupils. It determines the content of what will be taught and sets attainment targets for leaning in order to ensure that pupils develop the essential literacy and numeracy skills they need to learn from an early age As well as this, it aims to instil spiritual, cultural and moral values and promote mental and physical development of the individual.
These skills ultimately form the tools for life.
