When children leave the Foundation Stage after their Reception year they enter Key
Stage 1. This stage lasts two years (Year 1 & Year 2) and finishes at the end of Year 2 when the children are all seven years old. In May of their final year children are assessed by their teachers in English, Mathematics and Science, using National tests and teacher assessment. Results are reported to parents with the child’s annual record of achievement. Children in Key Stage 1 study the National Curriculum and Religious Education.
