School is organised in ‘phases.’
The Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage begins when children reach the age of 3. In our school the Foundation Stage begins when children start our Nursery and finishes when they leave Reception to move into Year 1. The children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. The teacher plans opportunities for a combination of child initiated activities and adult lead focus activities, both inside and outside.
Key Stage 1
We have two classes of 30 children in year 1, and two classes of 30 children in year 2. They make up the Key Stage One Phase. At the end of year 2, teachers use the standard assessment tests and tasks (SATS) along with their on going assessments to decide what level children are working at.
Lower Key Stage 2
We have two classes of 30 children in year 3 and two classes of 30 children in year 4 making up the Lower Key Stage 2 phase.
Upper Key Stage 2
We have two classes of 30 children in year 5 and two classes of 30 children in year 6. These make up Upper Key Stage 2. At the end of year 6, teachers make their own assessments, and in addition, children do specially designed tests known as SATS, in English and Mathematics. These results are reported to parents.
