The curriculum must include the sciences, languages and literacy, mathematics and numeracy, social studies, expressive arts, health and wellbeing, religious and moral education and technologies. All of these elements must be part of every learner’s broad general education from early years up to the end of S3, although there will be opportunities for some specialisation within areas to reflect the learner’s progress and interest. In the senior phase (S4 – S6), learners can reduce the curriculum areas covered, but they must have the sort of experiences that will further develop the four capacities. This is an entitlement for all learners at all stages of their education.
