We have implemented the UK National Curriculum at our school to cover the key learning areas outside the CIPP and CS1. We have aimed to not only ensure compatibility between subject areas, but also to benefit from the well-balanced nature of the UK standards as appropriate for our students.
The UK National Curriculum determines much of the content taught, but more importantly, it sets attainment targets for learning. It also determines how student performance will be assessed and reported. It gives teachers, students, parents, employers and the wider community a clear and shared understanding of the skills and knowledge that young people will gain at school. Using the UK National Curriculum, the individual learning needs of students can be met and the school can aim to develop a distinctive character and ethos rooted in the local community. It provides a framework within which all partners in education can support our young students on their road to further learning.
