The curriculum focuses on ‘higher expectations’ across subjects:

the content of the primary curriculum is significantly more

demanding than in the past.

Core Subjects: Foundation Subjects:

•English •History

•Maths •Geography

•Science •Art

•Design Technology

mastery and understanding of concepts and •Foreign Languages

explain their understanding to you.
