Good communication between teachers ensures a seamless transition from Reception to Year 1. Children are already familiar with the increased formality of core curriculum classes and progress easily to the National Curriculum as a framework for learning.
All children study English, phonics, mathematics and science and begin to explore religious education, geography, history, drama and art as part of their lessons. They also have music, sport and French lessons with specialist teachers. The introduction of personal, social, health and economic education allows children to think about their place in society and the wider world.
