In Key Stage 2 the children are encouraged to become more independent and self-sufficient.
They work more independently with class teacher support and intervention at appropriate times in the lessons. The core subjects of English, Maths, and Science are taught at differing levels which encourages growth and challenges the individual. It is the decision of the class teacher as to the level a pupil works at and their role to support the individual pupils in these subjects according to the needs of the particular year group.
We carefully monitor children’s progress so that each pupil achieves their full potential. Each half term, reports are written on the pupils, this enables the parents of our pupils to be aware of what academic stage their child is at within the curriculum and for them to know also the progress their child has made. We work closely with pupils and their families getting them ready for life after Green Meadow in their chosen senior school, ensuring that the pupil’s are happy, confident and knowledgeable of their next school. We do this through visits, discussions about other schools and correspondence with teachers of these other establishments.
Our weekly assemblies are held within three age groups, the first being the Early Years which is Kindergarten and Reception Class who together discuss topics from the EYFS and Every Child Matters which is more relevant to these children’s age groups. The second and third are in key stage 1 & 2 groups and topics for discussion are varied and can be linked to either Religious Education such as celebrations of festivals or Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE), such as, friendships, safety, healthy eating and personal achievements etc.
