Key Stage 1 consists of Year 1 and 2. The pupils are taught in classes with both a qualified teacher and teaching assistant in each class.
This ensures that each child continues to receive the individual attention that they need and that we at Babington House are renowned for. The teaching and learning becomes more formal in these year groups and the subjects, although taught in a cross curricular way, begin to have their own identity (for example Maths, English and Phonics).
The classroom and wider environment is one in which all pupils are cared for, challenged and supported to do their best.
Pupils are assessed through formal tests, marking, observations and discussion throughout Key Stage 1 to ensure that they are making excellent progress, our pupils achieve significantly higher than the national average.
