Brief information

In Key Stage 2, our curriculum aims to provide exciting and meaningful learning opportunities that enable learners to consolidate and deepen their knowledge, building on what they have already learned in Key Stage 1. We prioritise the core subjects of Maths, English, PSHE and PE, which are taught through discrete sessions that are tailored to the needs and interests of each individual learner. To provide a broad and balanced curriculum, we cover foundation National Curriculum subjects including Humanities (History & Geography), Art, Design & Technology, Science, Computing, Music and Religious Education (RE) throughout the academic year. These subjects are delivered through termly themes that provide opportunities for learners to make meaningful connections across different areas of knowledge. For those who may not be ready for subject-based learning, we continue to assess their progress using the Engagement Model. Our Key Stage 2 curriculum is designed to expand learners' interests and curiosity in preparation for Key Stage 3. We encourage active engagement to help learners develop their confidence and independence, providing them with a variety of tools to find and use their own voice. By doing so, we aim to prepare them for the challenges and opportunities of the future.
