State schools in England must teach a range of subjects according to targets set by the National Curriculum. This was established in 1989 to ensure the same standards of teaching and learning across the nation. Before this, schools where teaching random topics and if a child moved schools, there was not guarantee they would have covered the basics.
The National Curriculum covers learning for all children aged 5-16 in state schools, and sets out:
- which subjects should be taught
- the knowledge, skills and understanding a child should achieve in each subject (according to your child’s age)
- targets – so teachers can measure how well a child is doing in each subject
- It is easier to spot gifted children who achieve way above the targets, and children who are falling behind and need special assistance.
