Our Primary School is split into two key stages; Key Stage One and Key Stage Two.
The core focus in Key Stage One is building on the foundations established in EYFS. Children will be exposed to a variety of materials and resources, focusing on language development including reading, writing, speaking and listening. These skills will also be acquired through other subjects such as Mathematics, Science, History and Geography. The technological advances in the world today give us the opportunity to access the Key Stage One British National Curriculum through a variety of different kinaesthetic learning directives.
When students move on to Key Stage 2, they begin to be exposed to the broader spectrum of the curriculum, with a focus on Literature, Geography, History, Maths, Science, Fine Arts, French and Music.
BISM teaching and learning plan is done according to the National Curriculum of England and is set to achieve its learning objectives.
