Key Stages 1 + 2

We offer a broad, exciting curriculum, taught through a topic based approach that makes learning fun and encourages pupils.

Core skills are focused on in English, Maths, Science and ICT, and pupils are given individual targets in English and Maths to ensure they reach their full potential.

Our pupils are taught by motivated, highly qualified teachers whose lessons are designed to make subjects meaningful and relevant to our pupils. Our wide range of facilities and resources enables us to make learning an exciting, dynamic experience.


We aim to ensure that all pupils have equal access to the curriculum.

We believe that all children have the right to equal opportunities in all aspects of school life and we aim to ensure that all pupils have equal access to the curriculum. In Religious Education pupils learn about Christian traditions and beliefs, but also other religions promoting tolerance, understanding and respect for other cultures.

In Key Stage 1, children's development in phonics is supported through delivery of the 'Letters and Sounds' scheme.  This follows on from exposure to 'Jolly Phonics' in Early Years.

No one reading scheme is preferred at KS1.  Children can access "book-banded" books from Oxford reading tree, GINN and Collins.

Through Key Stage 2 we begin to encourage our pupils to become more independent learners. From Year 4, pupils are given secondary school style planners in which to record their work and help them develop organisational skills. We use a blend of mixed ability and ability groups in maths from Year 4 onwards, and in Years 5 and 6, where we use the ‘Success for All’ reading approach, some reading classes are also grouped by ability.
