    The National Curriculum does not apply to independent schools.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    Independent schools are not required to follow the National Curriculum set by the government. They have the freedom to design their own curriculum and teaching methods, allowing them to offer a more flexible and specialized education.
