The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development in preparation for life in Modern Britain. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also any other activity organised by school, for example, extra-curricular activities and any other activities designed to enrich the experience of the children. There is also a ‘hidden’ element to the curriculum which includes what the children learn from their school environment, the way they are treated and how they are expected to behave.
