Children begin their primary education at the age of 5 and remain in this phase until 11 years of age. The Primary National Curriculum of England and Wales is made up of two key stages:
Key Stage 1: Year 1 and Year 2
Key Stage 2: Year 3 until Year 6
At JCS we believe learning should be an exciting and inspiring journey encouraging students to embrace challenges and new ideas. We recognise that no two children are alike and as such, students are given access to learning opportunities allowing each child to achieve their potential. This learning journey is facilitated by our team of qualified and dedicated teachers using the standards set out in the National Curriculum of England and Wales. We provide opportunities for our students to work and learn in a variety of group configurations, from individual classes to Key Stages as well as the entire Primary School coming together to work cooperatively.
The school provides a clear and focused teaching strategy for English and Mathematics, and these subjects are taught daily. Our students are also given access to a broad range of subjects and learning opportunities:
Children learn about the world in which they live as well as developing their own creativity and physical expression. A thematic approach is used to teach these subjects where subjects can be integrated. All subjects are taught by class teachers except Physical Education, ICT, Indonesian and Music and Dance which are taught by specialist staff.
Assessment of students' progress is continuous through teacher assessment and in line with the standards set out in the British National Curriculum. Two interim reports and one summary report are completed during the academic year and these are followed up with parent-teacher conferences where there is the opportunity to discuss your child's education, development and progress.
