Pupils in Year 1 and Year 2 will be working on Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum and those in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 will continue through Key Stage 2.
All children, both within nursery and school, will experience a wide range of activities which are planned to contribute to his/her whole education which covers many aspects of development, including academic, moral, physical, social, religious, cultural and recreational. A great deal of this is not formally taught but is integral to the philosophy of the school. Courtesy and good manners and respect for others are necessary in establishing relationships and a good working situation.
