Key Stage 1-2 Curriculum
The Key Stage 1-2 Curriculum
The core curriculum provides pupils with a structured, topic-based approach to learning that covers all subjects of the National Curriculum. We support every child as they develop their potential within a learning environment that places communication at the heart of the curriculum.
The mathematics curriculum is set out in three phases—Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2—with focus areas identified across each half term.
The English curriculum is set out in three phases—Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2—with focused areas of learning in reading and writing that are tied together with comprehensive coverage of literacy themes and skills across each half term.
Pupils are provided with a rich diet of literature and encouraged to read for learning and pleasure. Our staff is trained in the Sounds-Write reading and spelling phonics programme which forms the basis of phonics and pre-phonics development.
Planning documents are precisely matched to the school’s assessment system.
