The English curriculum is for children from junior infants to sixth class. The curriculum identifies the importance of language in the learning process.

The content is presented under three strands:

  • Oral Language
  • Reading
  • Writing.

Additional Support Material

The current curriculum was introduced as part of the Primary School Curriculum (1999). Additional Support Materials for English were published in 2005. A new integrated language curriculum for English and Irish is available for infants to second class and will be available for all other classes from 2018.
