An introduction to CAPS
The Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS) is not a new curriculum, but an amendment to the National Curriculum Statement Grades R – 12 Subject Statements. It therefore still follows the requirements of the same process and procedure as the National Curriculum Statement Grades R – 12 (2002).
Each Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) is a streamlined, essential document necessary for teaching and learning in all subjects from Grade R to 12.
The importance of textbooks in quality learning and teaching has been re-emphasised. In addition to high-quality, CAPS compliant textbooks, Oxford University Press Southern Africa offers more posters, flashcards, big books, study guides, atlases and age-appropriate dictionaries to supplement the core learning and teaching material, and support teachers to implement CAPS in their classroom with confidence.
