The aim of this paper is to determine the dimensions of school curriculum as basic document planning activities, procedures and evaluation of effects of overall school life on pupils and teachers. Much more has been said about the curriculum of teaching, while the school curriculum seemed to cover the field of yearly planning and defining of curriculum, though only partially. The frameworks defined by law can sometimes be in conflict with the school development and autonomy. Although it is not inevitable, it frequently happens as the consequence of imposed influence of laws and decrees even in those areas where it is not necessary. The abovementioned influence of legislation on educational institutions limits the school’s inner potentials, and at the same time causes difficulties in expression of responsibility for quality and development. The explanation of reasons for higher quality of school curriculum is put in relation with its efficiency defined as fulfilment of pupils’, parents’ and teachers’ needs. Therefore, in this paper school curriculum is brought into relation with school functions, the tendencies of its optimal development, autonomy and desirable organizational models based on developmental curriculum.
