Primary School Level

Primary level Prerequisites

At primary level KS 1 or KS 2 (ages 5-11) we try to help students build subject knowledge by using the latest teaching and learning methodology. Prior to this we initiate a assessment to determine the level of the pupil / student. After our initial consultation we would create an action plan so that we can ensure how we can support your child excel and achieve his or her potential. We hope to instil discipline, increase motivation and allow students to gain the necessary skills so that they can utilise these skills in the coming years.

Therefore:

  1. Consultation
  2. Assessment
  3. Enrolment
  4. Timetable
  5. Action Plan for support
  6. Parent / CAM communication and support
  7. What can parents do?
  8. Time, frequency and length of support

Time to time we will consult with parents and if need be gain access to the schools. We hope parents will support us in this so that we can help and support the student.

Support:

  1. AM
  2. Parents
  3. School
  4. Homelife
  5. Siblings etc
  6. Wider community.

We expect all students to attend classes on time and attend regular sessions.

Overview

According to the Gov.uk website the ‘basic’ school curriculum includes the ‘national curriculum’, as well as religious education.

The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.

Key stages

The national curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘key stages’ (KS). At the end of each key stage, the teacher will formally assess your child’s performance.

Age Year Key stage Assessment
3 to 4 Early years
4 to 5 Reception Early years Teacher assessments (there’s also an optional assessment at the start of the year)
5 to 6 Year 1 KS1 Phonics screening check

Assessments

By the end of each summer term the school must write a report on your child’s progress and talk it through with you.

Children who are in years 2 and 6 at the moment will take the new national primary curriculum tests in 2016.
