What is the National Curriculum

The National Curriculum has two main aims. It requires that all maintained schools provide a balanced and broadly based curriculum that:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
