Perseid School

Lower School

All children in the Lower School benefit from the offer of music, drama, swimming and PE lessons weekly.

Lower School: Key Stages 1 and 2

In KS1 and 2, pupils study the National Curriculum, adapted with appropriate learning experiences for each child’s age and ability. 

Many subjects are taught through our Creative Curriculum via a play based or themed approach and core subjects of English and Maths are taught daily in finely tuned needs-led pathway sessions.

Throughout the academic year, pupils are provided with opportunities for educational visits in relation to their learning and throughout their learning experience at Perseid School, an emphasis is placed on developing independence, communication skills and knowledge in a stimulating manner.

The majority of Lower School pupils transfer to the Upper School Campus at the end of Year 6. To ensure the transition period is smooth and pupils settle in, they have a series of visits to the Upper School in their final term in order to meet new teachers and assistants, familiarise themselves with the school and their new timetable.
