Introduction – The Curriculum
The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also any other activity organised by school, for example, extra-curricular activities and any other activities designed to enrich the experience of the children. There is also a ‘hidden’ element to the curriculum which includes what the children learn from their school environment, the way they are treated and how they are expected to behave.
There are two main reasons for having a curriculum policy statement:

The Department for Education states that “Religious education is compulsory for all pupils registered in maintained schools up to the age of 18.

The proposed changes to sex, health and relationships education will now be debated in Parliament. If they are passed, they will become statutory from April 2021.
