In KS1 we support children to meet the standards set by the Department of Education. This includes Reading, Writing and Maths. We also focus on Speaking and Listening. We use the Early Learning Goals for the younger children.

In Year 1 we support and help in preparation for the Phonics Screening assessment which takes place towards the end of the academic year. To find out more about this please speak to one of our experienced teachers.

In Year 2 we particularly prepare for the KS1 SATS examinations. Children often struggle with the comprehension of questions. We help them break down questions and understand exactly what the question is asking from them. We provide support in Spelling, Punctuation, Grammar, Writing, Reading Comprehension. In Maths we focus on Arithmetic and Reasoning. Another main focus is time management as children often run out of time resulting in incomplete questions. By encouraging them to plan their questions they are more likely to reach the end of the paper
