Key Stage 1
Children move into Key Stage 1 when they are five, at the end of their Reception class year. We are careful to ensure a smooth transition into Year 1 by building on their experiences and achievements in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Children in Key Stage 1 have daily literacy and numeracy lessons but continue to learn through a topic based approach. The children have their own playground space where they can mix with children of different ages.
Key Stage 2
Children move into Key Stage 2 when they are seven, at the end of Year 2.
Our children are taught life skills that help them to understand wider issues such as tolerance and citizenship. They are encouraged to take on greater responsibility for their learning and development. Children are increasingly made aware of learning goals and areas for development.
Children in Key Stage 2 continue to have daily literacy and numeracy lessons.
