“Pupils feel safe and have a good understanding of how to keep safe. This is because the curriculum provides regular and appropriate opportunities for them to learn how to keep safe, including when using the internet.”

Swans Class

Key Stage 2 – Years 5 & 6

Upper Key Stage 2 starts in Year 5 and finishes when the children leave primary school at the end of Year 6. Emphasis in this class is still placed on a balanced and creative curriculum, but one that also encourages independence and self-organisational skills. By the end of Key Stage 2, the children will have had the opportunity to take part in a number of transition activities (so they feel more prepared for High school), will have had the opportunity to take part in a week-long residential trip and they will have also taken their Key Stage 2 SATs tests.
