The Government Web site states:
Compulsory national curriculum subjects are:
Schools must provide religious education (RE) and sex education from key stage 3 but parents can ask for their children to be taken out of the whole lesson or part of it.
- modern foreign languages
- design and technology
- art and design
- physical education
We get asked a lot about the mix of subjects for each Key Stage. With experience in wiriting school timetables as well, we've put together a few things that might help:
These are links to documents on the Department of Education Web site, explaining what's required in Key Stage 3. They provide a clear guide as to what you need to cover. The Government Web site can be a nightmare to navigate; these links might just take that headache away.
- English Programme of Study
- English Glossary This is extremely useful if you've forgotten the exact differences between verbs, adverbs, subjects, objects and so on.
Art and Design
Design & Technology
MFL : Modern Foreign LanguagesPlease Note: Unlike KS2 where the specification is merely Languages (which may include languages such as Latin or Ancient Greek), in Key Stage 3 the National Curriculum stipulates Modern Foreign Language - i.e. a language in use somewhere in the world today.

Introduction to coding in Scratch (with Maths!)The team at UCL ScratchMaths have put together a superb combination of maths ideas and an introduction to coding. Aimed at pupils in Years 5 and 6, it's a great intro for pupils who haven't explored coding in Scratch before. Also very suitable for Y7 if they've never done this before. Highly recommended!
