About Year 1
Ages 5 - 6
The early years in primary school are the foundation of your child’s education.
When your child enters Year 1, at about five-years-old, your child will come into contact with the National Curriculum for the first time. From then, until the age of seven, they will follow Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum. If your child is not ready for the National Curriculum they will be given more time to work within the EYFS curriculum.
