Nursery to Year 2
In the Early Years Foundation Stage, children are taught by highly skilled teachers who, supported by their own teaching assistants, ensure that the first years at Carr Lodge Academy are successful and happy ones. In classes buzzing with activity, the youngest children will be absorbed in the well- planned learning through play both indoor and outdoor.
Years 1 and 2 (Key Stage 1), children build upon the excellent formative experience in Foundation Stage with expert and innovative teaching by dedicated teachers and teaching assistants. Our progressive curriculum builds on the foundations established in EYFS whilst giving children the granular knowledge and life skills needed to prepare them for the next phase in their education. Phonics teaching in EYFS and KS1 is a clearly structured routine ensuring children leave KS1 as confident readers.
Years 3 to 6
Each class has its own teacher with some classes supported by teaching assistants and Special Needs Assistants based on the needs of our pupils. Children are taught subject specific knowledge throughout the academy building children's knowledge of how we can make a difference in the world by the end of KS2. By their final year at Carr Lodge Academy, our aim is to ensure that children in Year 6 are confident and articulate individuals ready to transfer to Secondary School.
