Key Stage 1

Standards are broadly in line with national figures at Key Stage 1, and standards improved in 2018. This is because of good quality transition between Foundation Stage and Year 1, and high quality teaching across KS1 and EYFS. Year 1 pupils initially experience a day that is organised along EYFS principles, with ‘continuous provision’, lots of hands-on, child-initiated learning, plenty of role play and opportunities to develop speaking skills, and the differentiated teaching of phonics. As the year progresses, learning begins to become more ‘formal’ as the children prepare for Year 2. Year 2 pupils are prepared for life in Key Stage 2, and are tested and teacher assessed in the summer term to give our KS1 results.
