Curriculum & Assessment
The National Curriculum
Please find below information relating to Key Stage 1 SATs and Key Stage 2 SATs. There are two parent videos (1 for each Key Stage) which you may find useful in supporting your children with their SATs preparation.
If your child is in Year 2 or Year 6, they will be taking national curriculum tests this year.
Year 2 children will do these at different times in the month of May. Year 6 children will complete them between the 13th and 17th May. It is essential that they are in school that week. The government have produced a leaflet for parents, which is on the school website, providing additional information.
If you have any questions, please see your class teacher.

Phonics and Reading at PRPS
At Prince Rock we use a wide range of phonics and reading schemes to support your child's early reading skills. In Foundation and Key Stage 1 children are taught using an amalgamation of structured schemes, including; Read Write Inc., Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds.
As the children's early reading skills develop, they are able to access a wide range of reading tools both in school and at home. This includes programmes such as Bug Club and Accelerated Reader. Many children benefit from working with our super Reading Team who work with the children to develop their reading skills and provide them with an added boost. They use Reading Recover and FFT.
