From September 2014, a new national curriculum came into force for Years 1, 3, 4 & 5. This curriculum has been more challenging than the previous curriculum as aspects of Literacy and Numeracy from higher year groups have been moved down and now require covering in the year below. In 2014-15, Year 2 & 6 continued on the previous curriculum for English, Maths and Science as their SATs assessed them on this content. These two year groups only covered the new curriculum in the non-core areas.
From September 2015, all year groups have followed this statutory curriculum and the document below sets out the content of the curriculum to be covered in each year group.
