Here is an overview of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
At the end of a child’s Reception class year, aged five, children progress onto Key Stage 1. In order to allow a smooth transition into Year 1, we aim to build on the skills, knowledge, experiences and achievements acquired in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Children in Key Stage 1 take part in daily literacy and numeracy lessons but continue to learn through a topic based approach. Due to the size of our school, each class has been designated an area within our playground. This gives children the opportunity to mix with other children of their age.

At the end of Year 2, aged seven, children make the transition into Key Stage 2. During this Key Stage, our children are taught life skills that help them to understand wider social issues such as tolerance and citizenship. All of our pupils are encouraged to take on greater responsibility for their learning and development and they are made increasingly aware of their learning goals and areas for further development.
Children in Key Stage 2 will continue to have a daily literacy and numeracy lessons and will continue to mix with the other children in their year groups during playtimes.
