What is statutory?

    Hi there. I just want to check a few things out as I've had a bit of a difference of opinion with a teacher friend about whether certain things are statutory at KS1 and KS2.
    Is MFL statutory at KS2 but not KS1?
    Is PSHE just guidance and not statutory in KS1 and KS2?
    Is Citizenship just guidance and not statutory at KS1 and KS2?

    I thought I knew these things but now realise I'm not 100% sure and I'm doubting myself. Does anyone have any links to show for these 3 subjects to show what is needed. I'm a bit muddled with the national curriculum and what has changed/is changing and would it would be great if someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks.

    Neither is statutory (see above link) although according to direct.gov parents' guide they are recommended. MFL was going to be statutory for KS2 from 2010 but this never came into law.
