National Curriculum Statement Grades R12:

Revised CURRICULUM AND ASSESSMENT POLICY documents

'Final Draft' CAPS documents

The National Curriculum Statement Grades R12 (NCS) stipulates policy on curriculum and assessment in the schooling sector. To improve its implementation, the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 is being amended, with the amendments coming into effect in January 2011. These amended NCS documents will replace the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-9 (2002) and the National Curriculum Statement Grades 10-12 (2004).

Single comprehensive Curriculum and Assessment Policy documents ('CAPS') are being developed for each subject to replace the old Subject Statements, Learning Programme Guidelines and Subject Assessment Guidelines in Grades R-12.

The 'final draft' copies of the amended Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) documents have been placed on the Thutong web site for download as follows:
