Key Stage 1

Lower Primary comprises Years 1, 2 and 3 and focuses on providing continuity and progression in learning for students as they transition from child-initiated play in EYFS to more structured learning experiences.

The curriculum builds on students' skills, interests, and experiences, and develops their confidence to learn and work collaboratively. It is designed to equip students with the essential learning skills of English, maths, humanities, PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and science with computing, drama, music, dancing and physical education to promote an enquiring mind with the capacity to think rationally. Hindi and French are taught beginning Year 2. As well as equipping students with the essential skills for learning, education in Lower Primary is about students experiencing the joy of discovery, problem solving and creative thinking to grow intellectually, socially and emotionally.

Assessment of learning is an ongoing process that informs planning and differentiation on a daily and unit basis. Learning expectation and progress are communicated to students through lesson feedback and with parents through newsletters, reports, parent-teacher conferences, notes in the school diary, meetings, and targets and profile sharing. The online standardised test analysis is used to set student targets in curriculum areas.
