The National Curriculum subjects for Key Stages 1 and 2 are set out in section 84 of the Education Act 2002. Religious education must be provided to all pupils on the school roll, unless withdrawn by their parents. The National Curriculum is organised on the basis of key stages. At Garsington Primary School we have two key stages:
Key Stage 1: Ages 5-7 (Years 1-2)
Key Stage 2: Ages 7-11 (Years 3-6)
For each subject and for each key stage, programmes of study set out what pupils should be taught and attainment level target descriptors set out the expected standards of pupils' performance. Our teachers decide how they organise the school curriculum to include the programmes of study. Pupils are issued with a Topic Web at the start of each term which informs pupils and parents as to the areas of focus for each subject.
