KEY STAGE 1 (Year 1 & Year 2)
For all our children, British Prince School provides a curriculum guide by the appropriate level of the English National Curriculum: Key Stage 1. We make a specific interest in Literacy, Numeracy and Science.
In Key Stage 1 (Year 2), your child will take SATs in reading and maths. They will also be assessed on speaking and listening, writing and science. SATs help teachers – and you – learn more about your child's strengths and weaknesses. We will use it to measure how much each child improves from one Key Stage to another.
KEY STAGE 2 (Year 3 to Year 6)
For all our KS 2 children, British Prince School provides a curriculum guide by the appropriate level of the English National Curriculum: Key Stage 2. We make a specific interest in Literacy, Numeracy and Science.
At the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6), SATs are compulsory in the UK and cover English reading, English grammar, punctuation and spelling, and maths. Other subjects, including writing, speaking and listening and science, are teacher assessed.
Children are encouraged to work with more autonomous skills and develop academic confidence, positive social skills and learn to collaborate and share ideas, thoughts and opinions. We work in Ability groups that are determined by a child’s ability to maintain focus in class and how well they work independently. We also work as a large group sharing experiences as a whole unit. We shift dynamics by creating a mini lab, art class and even allow moments for mindfulness.
To provide the standard of education we wish to provide our classroom sizes will be a maximum of 15 students per class. This way we can ensure top quality education and provide the following:
- Small class sizes lead to more one-on-one attention from the teacher
- Students get to know each other better
- Students learn about themselves
- Lessons can be tailored to individual needs
- There's less time spent on disruption
- So this allows more time for learning
- The class and the whole school as a whole become a community
- Allows for role play and preparation on how to deal and cope with bulling
