Key Stage 1 is the legal term for the two years of schooling in maintained schools in England and Wales normally known as Year1 and year2. All the pupils in this stage must follow a programme of education in at least 10 statutory areas set out on the National Curriculum website.
Our aim is for children to enjoy their time at school and to develop knowledge, understanding and values in order to reach their full potential in all academic and social areas of school life. The work of each year group is guided by the appropriate level of the English National Curriculum, Key Stage 1, which is by nature broad and balanced.
Key Stage 1 tasks and tests cover:
- Speaking and listening
In Language and Literacy we aim to provide a rich and stimulating environment in which children find interest and pleasure in communicating in English.
In Mathematics and Science we aim to develop a knowledge and understanding of the role of these subjects in everyday life.
Your child’s teacher will use the child’s work (including spoken work and homework) to work out what level your child is at in each area.
