What Will My Child Be Taught? - KS4

By now, you and your child will have made a number of decisions about what he/she will study and what qualifications he/she will aim for.

There can, though, be times when schools feel that it is not appropriate for students to study the full National Curriculum. They might believe that a student will do better studying fewer curriculum subjects for a short period of time. Schools can ‘disapply' all or part of the National Curriculum for up to 6 months. This means that certain subjects will not have to be studied. This could happen, for example, when a pupil arrives from another country and needs time to develop his/her English or when a student comes back to school after having been educated at home or excluded from school and so needs time to adjust.
