Lower Key Stage 2

Welcome to Lower Key Stage Two

Year 3 teacher: Miss Lydia Powell

Year 3 teaching assistant: Mrs Emma Hardware

Year 4 teacher: Mrs Sophia Probert

Year 4 teaching assistant: Mrs Annette Peakman

In Lower Key Stage 2, staff work together to ensure that the children have a comfortable and smooth transition between Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. In doing this, children are given a wide range of activities that develop and grow their independence and resilience, whilst nurturing their talents in all subject areas. Throughout the year, we actively encourage parental engagement, inviting parents to workshops three times per year to take a vital role in their child’s learning and experiences. Our half-termly newsletters will inform parents of our broad and balanced curriculum coverage.
