Lower School Curriculum

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.

Mr Lane is the Phase Leader for Lower School and he is happy to answer any questions that you may have. He is available on the playground at drop off and pick up time or you can make an appointment through the school office.

I would like to express my gratitude to the extent the school supports the festival of Eid Ul Adha. Not only by allowing the children a day to celebrate with their families but also by celebrating these events in the school as well.

Pearson Primary School has gone above and beyond the realms of every day teaching and learning in this challenging year. Thank you to the wonderful staff for all they do, both seen and unseen. Our child is happy, inspired, challenged, supported and making progress – what more could we ask for?

I have full faith in Mrs Clarkson and her wonderful team. They have bent over backwards over the past year to make sure my daughter has an education and I know they will continue to do so. They are amazing and I am so great full for their support for my child throughout the lockdowns. They have exceeded my expectations as they always go the extra mile.
