Schools also have to teach religious education, though parents have the right to withdraw children for all or part of the religious education curriculum.
In addition, schools are advised to teach personal, social and health education (PSHE) and citizenship, together with at least one modern foreign language.
At the end of Key Stage 2, your child will take national tests in English, maths and science.
You will be sent their test results and their teacher’s assessment of their progress.
