Key Stage 1 builds on the Foundation Stage and each child’s learning and development needs. We aim to provide our students with a broad based curriculum that develops their skills, knowledge, understanding and values. Topic work encourages our students to make connections across different subject areas, question links and use their communication skills as they work in groups to apply the knowledge and skills that they have learned.

The Core subjects at Key Stage 1 are:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science

The Foundation subjects are:

  • Art & Design
  • Computing
  • Design & Technology
  • Geography
  • History
  • Music
  • Physical Education

In addition to these, we will also teach Arabic, Islamic Studies and Social Studies in line with the requirements of the Ministry of Education.
