Confused about Key Stages?
The National Curriculum in England and Wales is divided into four Key Stages that pupils are taken through during their school life. For example, Key Stage 1 is taught during Years 1 and 2 of primary school. At each Key Stage, pupils in state schools will study certain subjects, following the requirements of the National Curriculum. Targets defined in the National Curriculum are assessed at the end of each Key Stage. The four Key Stages are:
|Key Stage 1||Ages 5–7||Years 1 and 2|
|Key Stage 2||Ages 7–11||Years 3, 4, 5 and 6|
|Key Stage 3||Ages 11–14||Years 7, 8 and 9|
|Key Stage 4||Ages 14–16||Years 10 and 11|
