KEY STAGE 2 (PRIMARY)
Welcome to Key stage 2’s curriculum page.
There are currently two classes in Key Stage 2, (2SP and 2AG) consisting of 15 pupils.
2SP – Mrs Pearce (Class Teacher), Mrs Marshall (HLTA), Mrs Roberts (Teaching assistant Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday), Miss Coleman (Teaching assistant Monday and Friday).
2AG – Miss Giddings (Class Teacher), Miss Ashley (Teaching assistant), Miss Wood (Teaching assistant)
Mrs S Pearce is the Head of Key Stage 2 and Mrs N Drury (Deputy Head Teacher) is the senior leadership team support for KS2. Pupils are admitted from Year 3 to Year 6.
Key Stage 2 have their English and Mathematics lessons in the morning and the rest of the curriculum each afternoon. P.E is on a Wednesday afternoon and pupils are encouraged to leave their P.E kits at school until the end of a term where it will be sent home to be washed and checked.
Management of pupil behaviour in Key Stage 2 is very good. All pupils have a house point chart as their reward system for good work, good behaviour and good personal progress. Once counted, the house points equate to certificates awarded in Key Stage assemblies at the end of each term and also house points for the pupil’s school house (Owls, Kestrels or Swallows).
To support and encourage good work and behaviour, we have a traffic light colour card system. A yellow card is issued as a reminder to refocus the pupil, an orange card is a warning that the pupil needs to cease the behaviour, a red card is issued if the pupil does not modify their behaviour or complete work. We also issue green cards for very good work, behaviour and achievements. Pupils on a termly basis attend a FAB visit, which stands for ‘For Above and Beyond’ attendance on these visits are guaranteed if a pupil has had no red cards. The percentage of pupils who attend these visits is very high in Key Stage 2.
Pupil’s achievements in Key Stage 2 are celebrated in weekly Key Stage and whole school assemblies. We also present the Spider Cup on a termly basis to a pupil who has demonstrated perseverance and determination to progress in an academic area or on a personal basis. Once a year we award the Swain Trophy for an outstanding effort by a Year 6 pupil.
Attendance in Key Stage 2 and across the Academy is closely monitored by Mr L Meenan, Assistant Head, Miss K Hoare, admin staff, and the Access & Inclusion Service. Good attendance is encouraged and celebrated through half termly attendance assembly and termly in the whole school assembly.
