Children in Year 1 are part of first school.


This ensures a seamless transition into school life.


Our overarching aim in First School is for every child to be able to read by 6, and the staff will endeavor, via high quality teaching and first class intervention using Read Write Inc. for this to happen.



Children in First School follow our Learning Challenge curriculum and families will be welcomed to our various enterprise events. We see parents as partners in their child’s learning and development and work alongside them at home.
