Boston St Nicholas C of E Primary School
The New National Curriculum
In 2013, the Government introduced a new national curriculum, which has been statutory for maintained schools like ours since September 2014.

Schools are now free to use their own approach to assessment; the old 'levels' that some parents may remember have been removed. As a school, we have decided to use 'Target Tracker' from Essex County Council.

Below, you can download end-of-year requirements for each core subject (English, Maths and Science) so that you can begin to understand what is required from children in each year group. Band 1 equates to Year 1, Band 2 to Year 2, etc.

These are national expectations which have been rewritten to be easier to understand by Essex County Council; all copyright remains with them.
