KEY STAGE 1 AND KEY STAGE 2
Children from ages 5 to 7 (year 1 and 2) follow the Key Stage 1 curriculum. Children follow the Key Stage 2 curriculum when they move in to year 3 until they leave Primary school, i.e. ages 7 to 11. Both Key Stages follow programmes of study outlined in the National Curriculum. Pupil progress and attainment is measured in line with age-related expected achievement, as set down by the DfE. Children are formally assessed at the end of years 2 and 6 with the national Standard Assessment Tests (SAT’s). Teachers are continually assessing their children day-to-day and formally assess them each term to ensure that they are making good progress. Any underachievement can then be highlighted and support provided where necessary.
All teachers’ planning is available to look at in the classrooms each week.
