Introduction to Year One

In Year 1, we make the transition from EYFS.  We cannot wait to discover the individual talents that the children in our classes have. We celebrate and value the person that each child is and open the door for who they can become.  We provide opportunities for children to embrace learning through real life, hands on investigative approach.  We prepare children to evolve into the next stage of their schooling and we strive to enable all pupils to achieve their personal best and to become confident and enquiring lifelong learners. 


Our school motto Dream Big, Shine Bright, underpins everything that we do in Year 1. We instill children to be determined in their learning, which develops their resilience. We aim to empower children, encouraging them to become independent and to believe in themselves. We will teach them to appreciate the little and big things in life. We will motivate through praise and recognition, and celebrate their many achievements however big or small.


The Phonics Screening check takes place in June which is a statutory national requirement for all Year 1 pupils.
