The statutory primary national curriculum, including programmes of study and attainment targets, for all subjects at key stages 1 and 2. Languages are only statutory at key stage 2.
These must be taught in all local-authority-maintained primary schools in England.
The statutory primary national curriculum is issued by law, which means you must follow it unless there is a good reason not to.
Schools are not required by law to teach the example content in [square brackets] or the content indicated as being ‘non-statutory’.
The individual programmes of study for key stages 1 and 2 are also available for each subject.
Further information about the pre-2014 primary curriculum is available on the National Archives.
