All pupils in community-maintained schools aged 5 to 16 follow the national curriculum programme of study in a full range of subjects. 

The Local Education Authority and the school governors have a responsibility to make sure that the National Curriculum is taught. In Scotland the 'National Priorities In Education', as approved by the Scottish Parliament in December 2000, are defined under the following headings: Achievement and Attainment; Framework for Learning; Inclusion and Equality; Values and Citizenship; Learning for Life.
