National Curriculum


The Department for Education (DfE) developed the National Curriculum which sets out the programmes of study and attainment targets for all subjects at all four Key Stages.

All local-authority-maintained schools in England must teach these programmes of study.

The majority of this National Curriculum was introduced in September 2014, with English and Maths coming into force for all year groups from September 2016.
