Key Stage One
In Year One, children make the transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. We support the children to slowly adapt to a more formal setting and timetable. This year, we focus on securing the basic skills children will use throughout their time at school as well as developing self-awareness, social skills and independence.
In Year Two we focus on securing the skills children will use throughout their time at school as well as further developing self-awareness, social skills and independence. At the end of Year Two we support and prepare children to make transition to the Junior School.
