Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS)

CAPS is a single, comprehensive and concise policy document, which replaces the Subject and Learning Area Statements, Learning Programme Guidelines and Subject Assessment Guidelines
for all the subjects listed in the NCS grades R to 12. It comprises the following:

• CAPS for all approved subjects
• National policy pertaining to the programme and promotion requirements of the NCS grades R to 12
• National Protocol for Assessment grades R to 12.

The department’s continued focus is on the phased-in implementation of the revised CAPS. The department completed the process with a roll-out to grades seven to nine and 12 in the 2014 academic year.
