Key Stage 2 - Hendal
Children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3,4,5 and 6) follow the National Curriculum programmes of study including the core subjects: English and Maths. We also complete a phonics assessment and deliver a phonics programme where this is needed. We have daily spellings, grammar, reading and writing lessons. For Maths we teach mastery skills using the ‘White Rose Maths’ programme.
In addition, we follow a thematic based topic curriculum which includes the foundation subjects: art, DT, history, geography and we incorporate science too. Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education also forms part of the curriculum which is delivered through ‘Votes for Schools’.
Children are base-lined on entry both academically and socially/emotionally to identify areas where they need support and SMART targets are set. This supports in identifying and delivering interventions the children need to ensure they make progress with the aim of children being able to access mainstream education.
To meet children’s social, emotional and health and SEND needs we provide bespoke interventions including: Lego Therapy, Emotional Literacy, Zones of Regulation, time to talk etc.
All children are assessed for any unidentified SEND needs and provided with an MSP (My Support Plan) to support children transition effectively back to a mainstream setting.
Also, we have outside professionals that deliver Forest Schools, Games Workshops and a weekly timetabled P.E lesson with a range of foci including: team work, listening skills and communication skills.
