Curriculum

The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by schools so that 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, your child  will be formally assessed by his or her teacher to measure their performance and progress.

St Mary Immaculate follows the National Curriculum as defined by the Department of Education. Information about the different programmes of study and attainment targets for all Key Stage 1 and 2 subjects can be found by clicking on the link below:

Primary School National Curriculum

On 20 January 2011 the Secretary of State for Education announced a review of the National Curriculum in England. The following link will take you to information about the review:

National Curriculum Review

The new National Curriculum will set out only the essential knowledge that all children should acquire, and give schools and teachers more freedom to decide how to teach this most effectively and to design a wider school curriculum that best meets the needs of their pupils.

While the review is being conducted, the existing National Curriculum requirements will remain in force.
