The DfE is conducting a review of the primary and secondary National Curriculum.
This site contains the statutory programmes of study for National Curriculum subjects which maintained schools must follow until a new curriculum is in place.

Key stage 3 subjects

Non-statutory materials previously published in this section can now be found on the UK government web archive. More information on the restructuring of the website is available in the FAQs section of this website.

The revised programmes of study for key stage 3 can be downloaded from the subject links below. Alternatively, a hard copy of 'The National Curriculum statutory requirements for key stages 3 and 4 from September 2008' can be ordered from the QCDA orderline.

You will find details of the statutory requirements for key stage 3 subjects in the general teaching requirements section of this website.
