Key Stage 2

At Key Stage 2, pupils access a full range of National Curriculum subjects. These are delivered by a class teacher using a primary school model to offer the highest level of consistency. These are delivered as discreet subjects and through a topic that changes each half term. This helps pupils to access more meaningful learning experiences in which they are able to make links between their learning in different subject areas helping them to contextualise and consolidate learning.

The range of subjects delivered at Key Stage 2 are: English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Computing, Art, Design Technology, Food Technology, Physical Education, PSHCE and Languages. Please see below further information on these subjects.
