The new 2014 National Curriculum in England provides the framework for schools to plan, implement and evaluate their own curriculum against national expectations. As an Academy, The Joseph Whitaker School is legally able to determine our own provision in terms of curriculum. Following a process of review and development during 2013-14 each of our subjects has aligned their previous Programmes of Study to the aims and subject content of the new National Curriculum. Full details of the subject curriculums for each year can be found by clicking on the links below.

Development of the new KS4 and KS5 specifications undoubtedly have an impact in KS3 and therefore further amendment is likely during the next eighteen months.

The new school KS3 Assessment Policy has now been implemented and can be viewed here:
