Key Stage 1 (Years 1-2)

At Forest Park Preparatory School, we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum. The curriculum offers not only the full range of academic subjects but also a wide variety of physical and creative experiences through art, design technology, drama, music, physical education, swimming and games. We help every pupil to fulfill their potential through dedicated and enthusiastic teaching, setting a high standard for all.

In Key Stage 1, the curriculum is enriched through the activities and opportunities offered and it is delivered using a variety of teaching styles. The acquisition of skills and knowledge is planned carefully to excite and stimulate young minds.

In English, a broad range of literary experiences is offered and the children are given a chance to delve more deeply into topics of particular interest and importance. Phonics is a key part of everyday learning and we follow the Read, Write, Inc curriculum programme across all age groups.

In mathematics, alongside a structured curriculum, further learning is enabled through differentiated and challenging work, mathematical investigations and maths games.

All subjects are made as hands-on as possible to make these early experiences memorable and rewarding. Our topics are reviewed and altered from year to year to ensure our curriculum is current, innovative and exciting.

Learning and Development

The Learning Support team at Forest Park works with the whole school to provide an appropriate and supportive environment for students to enable full participation in learning. Our aim is to make the learning experience rewarding and enjoyable for all students. We work on the key principles of equality of opportunity and our need to ensure that all our pupils are equipped to do their best.
