Infants (Years 1 and 2)

Years 1 and 2 are taught by fully-qualified and experienced class teachers in classes of approximately 22 pupils. Years 1 and 2 also enjoy the support of a fully qualified teaching assistant. Several subjects, for example French, Physical Education, Music and Drama are taught by specialist teachers.

In Years 1 and 2, the emphasis moves towards preparing the children for more formal studies in the basic subjects of Literacy, Numeracy and Science. The timetable also includes History, Geography, French, Music and Physical Education, as well as more interactive subjects such as ICT, Art and Design Technology. There is also a dedicated focus on Drama, which helps children of all ages to develop their self-confidence and social skills.

At all times our focus is on recognising, encouraging, harnessing and developing the particular skills of individual children, whilst emphasising the value and importance of being part of a team. This philosophy helps prepare our children exceedingly well for what they will encounter in later life.
