A strategy, first announced in 1996, for teaching the parts of the national curriculum for English concerned with the skills of reading and writing. It enlarges upon, and complements, the guidance for Key Stages 1 and 2 and for the Early Years Foundation Stage, which applies to children aged 0–5. The NLS Framework sets out recommended approaches to the teaching of English, as well as suggesting how lessons might best be structured and resourced; and provides objectives for the teaching of English from Year 1 to Year 6, term by term.
