• Individual Subject Progression of Skills

The National Curriculum sets out what should be taught in each year group or phase in the core subjects English, Maths and Science.

For foundation subjects, expectations are set out by Key Stage.


The main aim of the curriculum is to raise standards. It is intended to be challenging, focusing on both core subjects and foundation subjects knowledge and skills.  

The progression grids below have been developed, by subject leads, to show the year group expectations in every subject.  They help the teachers define the criteria of key skills and knowledge (based on the National Curriculum) and, when planning, helps them consider the overall Learning Objective; a focus for the objective and the resulting Success Criteria.

They also show the progression of learning as children move through the school, from Year R to Year 6.
