Maintained schools: your requirements
Community and foundation special schools must teach all National Curriculum subjects to pupils
But, you can deviate from the age-related expectations of each Key Stage where you believe they are inappropriate for individual pupils.
A representative from the DfE told us this.
The National Curriculum can be disapplied for individual pupils
If a pupil can’t access knowledge, skills and understanding from their current or previous Key Stages, they can be disapplied from all or part of a National Curriculum programme of study, or all or part of National Curriculum assessment arrangements.
