Key Stage 2
Our Key Stage Two curriculum continues the progressive learning journey from Key Stage One, building strongly on the individual and collective foundations already established.
Our broad and balanced curriculum continues the theme of developing confident, independent learners by providing further opportunities for children to transfer and apply their core Literacy and Numeracy skills across the curriculum within a wider variety of areas.
Children benefit from a progressive, 21st Century primary approach, remaining with their Class Teacher for the majority of the school day, whilst experiencing a gradual increase in the use of specialist teachers and facilities as they progress through the Key Stage.
This is a significant additional benefit for children at this age as, on a national level, many pupils would not expect to experience such a wide range of specialist areas, resources and opportunity until they enter Secondary School.
Such early access to quality specialist resources, combined with our ‘through school’ approach to transition allows a more advanced development of pupils’ confidence and specialist skills, well in advance of their entry into Key Stage 3.
In year 5 we welcome an additional intake of children, joining us from several local lower schools. Our experience of planning and teaching a 4 year KS2 curriculum, coupled with the forging of extremely close relationships with our partner school (through B.C.U.S: the Biggleswade Community Union of Schools) ensures pupils ‘hit the ground running’ and experience a smooth transition whenever they join us.
