Foundation Subjects

What are the Foundation Subjects?

The National Curriculum states that foundation subjects are: 

Art and Design, Personal, Social and Health Education including Citizenship, Computing and IT, Design and Technology, Modern Foreign Languages, Geography, History, Music and P.E. 

They differ to the core subjects of: English, Maths, Science and R.E which are explored in further detail. 

Even though foundation subjects are not explored as thoroughly as the core subjects, they are still important because they introduce students to a wide variety of skills and knowledge.


At Cusgarne we know that an essential skill the children need to learn and be confident in, is I.T. (Information Technology).  We teach concepts such as: algorithm, simple programming, reasoning, sequence and selection in a way that engages our pupils to prepare them to participate in a rapidly changing world.
