Key Stage 1 and 2

Parents and carers have a duty to support the education of the children in their care and should ensure 100% attendance. Every school has a designated teacher for CiC and this will be the person to liaise with.

Children attending primary school will start in reception and move in to key stage 1 (years 1 and 2, when pupils are aged between 5 and 7) and then key stage 2 (years 3 and 4, when pupils are aged between 7 and 11).

Tests and assessments
