Across KS1, we pride ourselves on the quality and breadth of the curriculum. Our KS1 curriculum is designed to serve the needs of all pupils, using a variety of approaches and stimuli, including visits, visitors, theme days and engaging activities. We are committed to making learning enjoyable in a safe environment protected from harm.
In KS1, every pupil studies subjects prescribed by the National Curriculum, exploiting cross-curricular links where appropriate.
