Year 1

Miss Thielmann (Teacher) / Miss Reed / Miss Turnbull (SEN)


In Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2) we build upon and respect the very good start the children receive in the EYFS. We aim to create and provide a safe, secure, motivational and thought-provoking environment that encourages children to become curious and independent learners.
