What is CAPS and can other curriculums benefit from the site?
Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS) is the curriculum prescribed by the Department of Education for use in all public schools. It offers a structured and detailed outline of what educators must teach learners in each Grade, year and term. It was designed to ensure teachers are getting through the curriculum in the prescribed amount of time and that learners are properly prepared for final examinations in their matric year.
According to the DBE, while schools may approach the curriculum differently, in that some schools may choose to extend the offering by assigning more projects or activities than other schools, the basics outlined in the CAPS documents must be adhered to.
These documents are available for perusal online and it is in the interests of every parent to acquaint themselves with the guidelines and to know exactly what their child should be learning in the classroom.
Private schools in South Africa can choose to follow CAPS, IEB or Cambridge curriculums. The material offered on this website will benefit all curriculums. It is how the content is structured, rather than the content itself that differentiates the curriculums. The basic principles covered mathematics, languages and the sciences remains the same across all curriculums.
