Year 1

Welcome to Year 1.

We aim to provide a happy and secure learning environment where all children are encouraged to try their best and reach their full potential. We ensure that the classrooms are an exciting and stimulating place to be which motivates them to work hard and achieve highly whilst having fun.

Year 1 children prepare for the Phonics Screening Check. It is a short test taken each June to assess your child’s reading ability.

We strive to provide the children with a broad, balanced and creative curriculum catering to the needs of all children.
