The substance of the day-to-day teaching practice of Ladysmith Junior School is laid out in the National Curriculum, which is organised on the basis of four Key Stages and ten subject areas. In English and mathematics we follow the National Literacy and Numeracy strategies which are now combined as the National Primary Strategy.
We are a Key Stage 2 school teaching children aged 7-11-within Year groups 3 - 6.
More details on how these subjects are taught can be found by following the subject links in the Navigation bar-
Religious Education does not form part of the National Curriculum, but is taught following the Agreed Syllabus produced for all Schools.
However, not every child will be able to achieve all that is suggested by particular age. Additionally, some children may progress beyond the defined levels. If a child does not reach the defined level by the end of the Key Stage, this should not be regarded as a failure, but an indication that the child requires a little more time, additional experiences and targeted help. The child that does progress beyond what is expected will also require targeted help.
We will continue to ensure that all children acquire the basic skills, knowledge and attitudes, needed for improved levels of achievement, through our high expectations all children.
