Key stages of the curriculum

A way of organizing the curriculum into blocks of school years and normally covering the period of compulsory schooling. This typically implies defining the knowledge, skills, attitudes and the related attainment targets/learning outcomes appropriate for the learner’s age and maturity level within each stage. Key stages of the curriculum may not necessarily overlap with formal educational stages.
