The Jersey curriculum
In September 2014 the national curriculum for schools in England was updated. The Jersey curriculum is based on the national curriculum so the changes apply to Jersey schools.
The Jersey curriculum now sets out what must be taught in Maths, English and Science lessons which will take up a substantial part of a child’s learning week. Alongside these are other 'foundation subjects': Art, Computing, Design and Technology, French, Geography, History, Music, PSHE (including Citizenship), Physical Education as well as Religious Education. Schools now have more flexibility in what they cover in these subjects.
A parent's guide has been designed to help parents support their children in making the most of their education. It provides an outline of the typical content and some background information about how the curriculum and assessment works.
