Key Stages Explained

There are 3 Key Stages within the Academy. These are housed in their own pavilions. Staff work in close knit teams where all staff take responsibility for all children.

Key StagesClassesAges
Foundation StageTree Tots, Nursery and Reception2-5 years
Key Stage 1Year 1 and Year 25-7 years
Lower Key Stage 2Year 3 and Year 47-9 years
Upper Key Stage 2Year 5 and Year 69-11 years

Underpinning each Key Stage is a strong and rigorous desire by staff to know each child as an individual and therefore make personalised decisions about the required provision needed to support and challenge the children’s progress.

Planning is skilled based within structures which allow staff to be creative and motivational in their teaching allowing and creating enthused, knowledgeable, independent and resilient learners.
