Key Stage 1

At Orwell Park, we aim to give each child the opportunity to grow and blossom. As your child enters Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2), we still have outdoor learning as a key part of our curriculum. This enriches and stimulates language, understanding and enjoyment. Fresh air breeds fresh thinking!


National Curriculum guidelines are followed and we pride ourselves on having staff who are up to date with current initiatives. We utilise the key objectives of the curriculum, interspersing it with our own planning, personalised to your child. We have specialist teachers for French, Digital Skills, Music and PE and we offer individual music lessons.

A challenging and stimulating curriculum leads to higher-level thinkers and learners.

Links with parents

We pride ourselves on having strong home/school links and involve parents in a variety of ways. You will be invited on nature trails, picnics and many other events during the school year. We have an Open Door policy and we always welcome you into the classroom with your child.

The online Learning Journal, Tapestry does not stop in Key Stage 1; we upload work, share photographs and keep you up to date with your child’s learning. This unique approach strengthens home/school links.
