GIM Primary School environment is one where the children feel empowered to ask questions, safe to meet challenge head on and are accompanied on their journey toward reaching their full potential. These first years are vital for developing their critical thinking and problem solving skills. In Years 1 to Year 6, children follow the curriculum as outlined in the British Curriculum’s Key Stage 1 and 2 covering a wide range of subjects including Mathematics, Science and English as the core subjects supported by Humanities, ICT, Art, Music, PE, ICT and PSHE with one additional subject which is MFL (Modern Foreign Language) in KS2.

Key Stage (KS) 1 – Year 1 & 2

After completing the Foundation Stage, children enter Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and Year 2.) Effective transition between Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 is vital for the stability and development of the children. Learning opportunities are planned for children to access continuous provision to allow them to apply their knowledge and skills in real life contexts, develop and form relationships and encourage children’s enthusiasm for learning.

In Key Stage 1, each term children focus their work around a ‘theme’, incorporating the core subjects of English, Maths and Science alongside History, Geography, Art, Technology and Computing as well as Social Studies. It is through this cross-curricular approach that teachers skilfully provide opportunities for children to make connections between the subjects and begin to develop their problem solving skills.

Key Stage (KS) 2 – Year 3 to 6

The Key Stage 2 curriculum, which is based on the National Curriculum for England is innovative, engaging and designed to meet the needs of all learners. The children in Key Stage 2 continue their progress through the carefully planned curriculum themes to continue to push children’s learning and critical thinking to the maximum, focusing on the key 21st century skills of communication, problem solving and teamwork. High expectations are set for all our children in every aspect of their school life to enable them to reach their potential. Enriching opportunities are delivered through a cross-curricular approach which are designed to stimulate curiosity and engage children in their learning by making it meaningful and relevant to the world around them.
