Lower School

All our pupils aged 3 – 5 years old work from the Early Years Foundation Stage 0 – 5 curriculum. In Key Stages 1 and 2, pupils follow the National Curriculum adapted with appropriate learning experiences for each child’s age and ability.

Many subjects are taught through a play based or themed approach and all children in the Lower School have music, drama, swimming and PE lessons each week. Literacy and numeracy are taught on a daily basis.

At Key Stages 1 and 2, we teach our pupils about the world around them, aiming to give them a sense of their unique identity. We explore their relationships with each other and the wider community.

We strongly advocate a healthy lifestyle, being active and learning to be as independent as possible. Daily exercise programmes and access to play facilities ensure our pupils have fun and are as active as they can be. We have an emphasis on healthy eating, ensuring, for example, that pupils have healthy snacks. We provide special diets as required, through liaison with the school nurse, parents, carers and dietician.
