To reference National curriculum documents produced as PDF documents, you should follow the format for an Online PDF document as shown in the MMU Harvard referencing guide.

It is better to download and use the PDF version of National curriculum guidance and information, particularly as you will have a page number to use for direct quotes. However if you are using information about the National curriculum that you have read on a webpage, you should reference this as a webpage, as shown in the section Webpage (including blogs and social media sites) in the MMU Harvard referencing guide
