The Foundation Stage of the curriculum is the first part of the National Curriculum, focusing on the distinct needs of children aged three to the end of the reception year.
The children work on the following six areas of learning -
Personal, social and emotional development
Communication, Language and literacy
Knowledge and understanding of the world
Pupils in year 1 and 2 will be working on Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum and those in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 will continue through Key Stage 2. The school provides a broad and well balanced curriculum in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum and develops the work of individual children according to their age and ability.
