Welcome to Key Stage One!

In Years 1 and 2 (5 - 7 years of age) we follow the English National Curriculum.  We build on the firm base that children have received in the Foundation Stage and provide pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum that allows them to become confident and enthusiastic learners. The curriculum favours a practical and creative approach and encourages children to understand how their skills can be applied to real-life situations.

The National Curriculum sets out the learning and expectations for Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2). Students in Key Stage 1 enter the first stage of Primary school.

KS1 tasks and tests cover:

  • Reading

  • Writing

  • Speaking and listening

  • Maths

  • Science

English, Maths and Science are considered core subjects in Primary education, and as such they take up a substantial part of the children’s learning week. Each child has a highly qualified teacher, who aside from being responsible for their pastoral care, teaches pupils all KS1 tasks, Design & Technology and PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education). All pupils also receive, as required by law, a daily lesson of Spanish and Catalan.  Other subjects of the National Curriculum include: History, Geography, Art, Music, and Physical Education. All subjects are taught through a thematic and creative approach. We believe that learning should be meaningful and we give children the opportunity to learn in a way that is familiar and relevant to their every-day lives. 

Welcome to Key Stage Two!

In Year 3 (7-8 years of age) we continue to follow the English National Curriculum. Pupils continue to be taught by a highly qualified teacher for English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Art, Design & Technology and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education). Other subjects of the National Curriculum include: Physical Education, and Music. As required by law, pupils receive a daily lesson in Spanish and Catalan.  

All subjects are taught through a thematic and creative approach, using many different teaching strategies with the children working individually, co-operatively in small or large groups, and at times as a whole class. We believe that learning should be meaningful and we provide opportunities to promote pupils’ moral, social, spiritual, and cultural development.

At this stage pupils are encouraged to learn, practise, combine, develop and refine a wide range of skills in their work. There are six key skills which enable pupils to improve their learning and performance in education, work and life:

  • Communication

  • Application of number

  • Information Technology

  • Working with others

  • Improving own learning and performance

  • Problem solving
