Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2

As children move from Reception to Year 1 and until they leave us at the end of Year 6 we follow the National Curriculum.  The National Curriculum is divided into core subjects and foundation Subjects.

The core subjects are:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science

The foundation subjects are;

  • Computing
  • Art
  • History
  • Geography
  • Design and Technology
  • PE
  • Music

We also teach French, Personal Social, Health and Citizenship Education and R.E.

The Government has asked schools to implement and deliver a new curriculum from September 2014.  Pupils in Y6 and Y2 will still follow the previous curriculum in English, Maths and Science that was statutory before September 2014.
