The next step is primary school, which is part of the general education programme. General education in Russia it's compulsory and comprises three stages: primary education, which lasts for four years; basic general education lasting for five years and secondary education which lasts for two to three years. The basic curriculum for has some compulsory fields of study such as the Russian language, foreign languages, mathematics, history, politics, natural sciences etc. Every school designs its own curriculum, which is based on state requirements, and there can be some extra or optional disciplines.

These schools can also offer extra education for children, alongside the general courses.
