Saltus Primary Department consists of three stages:- Foundation, Key Stage One (S1 and S2) and Key Stage 2 (S3 – S6). At the Foundation Stage key learning skills such as speaking and listening, social interaction and cooperation are integral parts of instruction as students are prepared to enter a more formal structure in Key Stage 1. At Key Stages 1 and 2 each subject has a programme of study which identifies what students should be taught as well as a set of attainment targets which outline the expected performance standards. Each attainment target has eight levels plus a final level for exceptional performance. At each stage students are provided with support as needed so that they have a positive experience in a nurturing and student-centered environment.
