KS 1 - Years 1 & 2

Key Stage 1 covers Years 1 and Y2. It builds on the skills and independence started in the Foundation Stage. The transition from Reception to Year 1 is dealt with sensitively, especially in the first term where learning through play still forms part of the curriculum.

Each September we hold a Key Stage 1 Evening to which all parents and carers of those pupils in the Years 1 and 2 classes are invited. At this meeting form teachers and the Key Stage 1 Co-ordinator give an outline of their role and a presentation to highlight the changes in approach to teaching as well as the challenges of this next stage of each pupil's learning with examples of the work your children will cover.

Our partnership with parents and carers is very important to us. We believe that when parents and carers work together to support a child’s education this has a positive and lasting effect on children’s individual achievements.
