The Primary Curriculum is divided into Key Stage 1 and 2, to provide age appropriate levels of education. Through a differentiated educational programme, variances in abilities and curriculum exposure are addressed. If required, additional support can be offered through our Additional Support Department.
The Key Stage 1 curriculum builds on the skills students have developed in the Early Years Foundation Stage. This learning development continues into Key Stage 2 which ends at Year 6.
The content covered in individual subjects is derived from stipulated Programmes of Study which encompasses:
- Art and Design
- Design and Technology
- Physical Education and Swimming
Other curriculum subjects offered include:
- Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
- Religious Education
- French as a Modern Foreign Language
Assessment at Braeside School is continuous, clarifying what each child should know, understand and do in a lesson. It also encourages children to review what they have learnt and the next steps in their learning, utilising a range of strategies. Data from assessment is used to celebrate children’s achievements, identify areas of development and inform planning for the school as a whole. Assessment is carried out through target setting, project work, written assessments and homework assignments.
