These Key Stages cover grades K–5 in the United States and many other systems.
Key Stage 1 outlines the curriculum for children in Years 1 and 2.
Key Stage 2 covers Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
The curriculum in Key Stages 1 and 2 is designed to build on the practical learning of the Foundation Stage (Nursery & Reception classes). At our school many children enter Key Stage 1 without previous formal educational experience. Our teachers are experienced in working with children from many national systems and the support they provide in class enables children with a variety of educational backgrounds to make a smooth transition to successful learning at the appropriate level.
