Our Curriculum

Testing

At the end of both Key Stage 1 and 2 (Year 2 and 6), your child must take National Tests in English (Reading and Grammar) and Maths. This is in addition to a level of attainment in writing.

You will be sent their test results and their Teacher Assessment of their progress.

It is our aim that by the end of Key Stage 1, most children will have reached National Standard, and by the end of Key Stage 2 most will have met or exceeded National Standard.

Reading Schemes and Phonics

Within Key Stage 1, the Oxford Reading Tree programme is used to teach early reading. This is supplemented by books from Rigby Star which provides a different  style of text for the children to enjoy.

Phonics is taught daily using resources from Jolly Phonics and following an East Sussex County Council approved scheme of work. This programme means that children at Stonegate achieved very well in the end of Year 1 Phonics test.
