Children’s Learning

Every state school is required by law to deliver the National Curriculum (September 2014), but whilst advice and guidance in the form of programmes of study is provided, schools are able to plan and organise teaching and learning in the way that best meets the needs of their pupils.

In school children’s learning is organised into Key Stages.

What are Key Stages?

The term ‘Key Stages’ refers to the different stages of education. Schools usually identify four ‘Key Stages’ as well as an ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ (children in Nursery and Reception).

Here at Tynsel Parkes we have:

Early Years Foundation Stage - Nursery & Reception Class
Key Stage 1 - Year 1 and Year 2
Lower Key Stage 2 - Year 3 and Year 4

To complete Key Stage 2 (Year 5 and Year 6), children transfer to a middle school at the end of Year 4.

Below you can find information about children’s learning organised by Key Stages.
