Key Stage 2

The National Curriculum for children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 is used by staff to create a range of rich learning experiences.  This is further enhance through residential visits for children in each year group.  The subjects taught are the same as those in KS1, with the addition of French.

Assessments and Recording Progress

Ongoing assessments and observations are recorded by each class teacher and the Teaching Assistants. These are then used to make formal assessments, as well as providing the basis for the mid-year and end of year written reports for each child. The ongoing daily/weekly assessments are used to plan the learning for the children, thereby ensuring that the varying learning needs are successfully catered for.

In Years 5 and 6 each student will take CATs tests and Progress tests in English, Maths and Science.  The results of the children in Y5 are sent electronically to the KHDA as a part of their evidence base for monitoring standards in schools.  In Y6, the students will also be formally assessed at the end of the year, using the National Curriculum Tests for England.

Reporting to Parents

Parents are invited to meet their child’s teacher to discuss their progress and learning needs each term. Written reports are issued three times a year:  one for each term. Parents are welcome to arrange a meeting with the class teacher or the specialist teacher, such as the Arabic/Islamic Studies teacher (where relevant) to discuss any issues.
