Key Stage 1

The children in Key Stage 1 are organised into three classes.  One class of Year 1 children, one class of mixed Year 1 and Year 2 children and one class of Year 2 children.  This organisation allows the teaching staff to ensure an effective learning transition from Foundation Stage for the children in Year 1.  The classes are based on the age of the children.  The youngest children are in the Year 1 class and the eldest children in the Year 2 class.  Other factors are also considered when placing children into their Key Stage 1 classes, such as the number of girls and boys or particular learning needs.  Children within each class work at a level appropriate to their learning needs and all teachers differentiate lessons to ensure both support and challenge for those children who need it.
