SCHEDULEAMENDMENT OF THE DOCUMENT

On page 1, in the passage headed “Access”, for the words:
“The programme of study for each key stage should be taught to the great majority of pupils in the key stage, in ways appropriate to their abilities.”
there shall be substituted
“Schools are required to provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum, which must include the National Curriculum foundation subject of art. In planning their art curriculum at Key Stages 1 and 2, schools should have regard to the Programme of Study set out below, and to the desirability of allowing pupils to follow it, in ways appropriate to their abilities. In so doing, schools should give appropriate weight to any prior need to improve the literacy and numeracy skills of pupils and any necessary adjustments to the Programme of Study should be made to allow this.

The Programme of Study for Key Stage 3 should be taught to the great majority of pupils in that Key Stage, in ways appropriate to their abilities.”
