The Education Reform Act of 1988 gave all pupils of compulsory school age, including those with a wide range of special educational needs (SEN), a legal entitlement to the National Curriculum Programmes of Study (PoS) for history. This chapter will look at the requirements of the statutory orders, revised in 1995, explore some of the issues concerned with relevance and access for pupils with learning difficulties and give examples of activities in history with reference to the relevant PoS.
