In Year 1, children will begin the Key Stage 1 curriculum. The Foundation Stage Profile, together with ongoing teacher assessment informs initial planning and teaching across the broader Year 1 curriculum. Teachers in Year 1 will use aspects of EYFS philosophy and best practice in child-directed, (as well as teacher-directed) learning in the classroom, to provide a creative and engaging curriculum for the children. Year 2 is the time when most children secure many of their initial key skills as young learners.
Year 3 and 4 pupils will follow the rigours of the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2, delivered through creative and engaging teaching. The curriculum will seek to develop pupils into confident and competent communicators and decision makers, who are intellectually curious and willing to take risks in their learning. Their interpersonal skills and emotional development will be supported by teachers across the different curriculum areas.
In Years 5 and 6, all teaching will be delivered by subject specialist teachers.
