The Lower School is made up of children from years 1, 2 and 3. The adults in this phase of school work together to give children the best learning opportunities possible.
The oldest children in this phase are very important leaders and role models. All children in year 3 are expected to take on a leadership role so they can contribute meaningfully to the community through their work.
Becoming confident and fluent readers is a key priority during lower school and we expect that all children read, every day. Book bags need to be in school daily to support the smooth running of our home reading programme.
Miss White is the Phase Leader for Lower School and she is happy to answer any questions that you may have. She is available on the playground at drop off and pick up time or you can make an appointment through the school office.

Helping your child be ready for the year 2 tests
Children in Year 1 will complete the Phonics Screening Check in June 2022. This check helps us to provide additional support for children in year 2. Children who do not meet the expected standard at the end of year 1, will take the check again in Year 2.
