In the early part of Year 1, our curriculum is based on a mixture of the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum.
Phonics: We follow the Letters and Sounds Document.
Key Stage 1 relates to children aged five to seven years, Key Stage 2 relates to children aged seven to 11 years old. Areas of study are in line with the National Curriculum as we believe that this offers all our children a broad and balanced education.
Your child’s education is of utmost importance to us and we have planned our curriculum to ensure that each year our students build on the skills learnt from the year before and that there is no repetition in their learning. Our staff are highly qualified and we have a good balance of EYFS, Primary and specialist teachers. This means that your child will access specialist teaching at an earlier age than in most other academies.
