The Primary Curriculum in a Nutshell


Overview of the Primary Curriculum

Based on National Curriculum published in September 2013

This document below presents an outline of the content of the new National Curriculum from 2014

Core subjects (English, Maths & Science) are presented in a year-by-year format, based on the outlines given in the National Curriculum. History is also presented in this format, based on a suggested programme.

All other subjects are presented in two-year sections, dividing KS2 into Lower and Upper Key Stages.

It should be noted that it is only statutorily required to cover each Key Stage’s content by the end of the key stage. It is for schools to decide on the most appropriate ordering for their situation.
