Pupils in Key Stage 1 are aged between 3 – 7 years old and are taught in mixed ability groups similar to but smaller than their mainstream peers.
Pupils are mostly taught by their class teacher. Each teaching group has a named Level 3 Teaching Assistant to support them and many classes have Level 1 Teaching Assistant support. Some pupils have exceptional need support from Level 2 Teaching Assistants. Some subjects (e.g. Food Technology, Computing) are taught in specialist rooms.
Further details regarding the content and approach for the year groups within this key stage are given, by subject, in the documents on this page.
