A new curriculum comes into force for children in Year 1 in September 2014 nationally. As a school we have worked with subject leaders to plan to meet the needs of the new curriculum requirements, whilst also ensuring our curriculum meets the needs of the children in our school specifically. In time we will add our long term plan, sharing topics to be taught in Year 1. Please see the attachments below which provide an outline of the nationally agreed curriculum that must be taught to children.
If you have any questions about any area of the curriculum, please see Mrs Robb our KS1 Leader or the relevant subject leader.
Statutory Assessment at Year 1
Children in Year 1 will complete the government Phonic Screen in June of each year. This assessment is carried out by a qualified teacher on a one to one basis. Children will not know that they are completing a formal assessment. Parents will receive their child’s assessment outcomes as part of their school report. Children who do not pass the Year 1 Phonic Screen as they have not yet met the required standard will be rescreened in Year 2. For more information about this check please see the attachments below.
