Key Stages 1 & 2

At Key Stages 1 and 2, the children follow the programmes of study set down by the National Curriculum. These include the National Primary Frameworks for Literacy and Mathematics. Curriculum information for each year group is sent to parents early in the autumn term and is also available on the school website.

The core curriculum at Key Stages 1 and 2 comprises:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Computing
  • Religious Education

Children also study the following subjects as part of the National Curriculum:

  • History
  • Geography
  • Physical Education (Games, Gymnastics and Dance)
  • Art and Design
  • Design and Technology
  • Music
  • PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and Citizenship
  • Reading is taught through a variety of different structured schemes, supplemented with a wide range of other books. Books are organised in a structured way to allow children many opportunities for consolidation of key vocabulary. We encourage parents to work with their child at home, by hearing them read daily.
