In Key Stage One the team work closely together to provide exciting learning opportunities to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum. Parental support is valued and every opportunity is taken to involve families in their child’s learning journey. We enable the children to become confident, resilient learners who can work independently and collaboratively to achieve their goals. During Key Stage One the children are encouraged to manage their own learning by recognising the next steps they need to take in order to make progress.


Our half termly newsletters keep parents and carers up-to-date with the latest curriculum information.
