Development of the National Curriculum
• 1988 The National Curriculum is introduced in all state schools in
England, Wales and Northern Ireland, prescribing what children
should be taught to ensure each pupil is given the same standard of
education. Along with the new curriculum, GCSE exams for 16 year
olds are taught for the first time.
• 1990 Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) are brought in at state
schools for all seven year olds.
• 1994 An A* grade is invented at GCSE to help distinguish between
the top candidates. SATS are also introduced for 11 year olds.
• 1996 The Education Act 1996 requires all maintained schools to
offer courses in religious education, but parents can opt their
children out of the subject. Secondary schools must also offer a sex
education programme.
• 1997 A third SAT exam is created for all 14 year olds in the country.
More education laws also ensure all older pupils are given courses in
careers education.

• 2000 A major overhaul of A-levels sees each course broken down
into six modules, three of which are sat a year earlier at the new AS
level.
• 2002 New laws force all schools to offer pupils at least one course in
each grouping of subjects at GCSE: the arts, design and technology,
the humanities, and modern foreign languages.
• 2003 Laws preventing councils from "promoting teaching in any
maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a
pretended family relationship" are axed.
• 2007 Labour is criticised for telling schools to strip back the
traditional curriculum, removing Churchill and Hitler from the
syllabus in favour of courses in debt management, the environment
and healthy eating.
• 2008 A level exam marking criteria are adapted to include a new A*
grade similar to that at GCSE.
• 2009 Unpopular SATs for 14 year olds are scrapped, along with the
science exam for 11 year olds

the new curriculum?
• Rewritten our whole school curriculum map for
each subject and each year group.
• Revisited the principles of effective marking to
inform teaching.

all children using levels.
