KTS 2 (Primary)

 

INTRODUCTION 

The KTS 2 department at KTS Academy generally caters for pupils aged seven to eleven years of age.  We currently have 6 class groups within our KTS2 department. There is flexibility about the ages of pupils in order to place them within a group where their needs are met most appropriately.   

AIMS 

  • To support children’s personal development in every aspect, promoting happiness, confidence, independence and resilience, however that may look for each individual.    
  • To provide a broad, balanced and fully inclusive curriculum, which meets each child’s individual needs within a safe and stimulating environment. (Article 29 RRSA) 
  • To equip pupils with the knowledge and skills they will need in the future.  

 

Each class has a high staff:pupil ratio and the classroom environment reflects the needs of the pupils, with specialist resources and play equipment.  

 

We are lucky to have many specialist areas, including our Hydrotherapy Pool, trampoline to deliver Rebound therapy, Soft Play, Sensory Integration room and Sound and Light room. Outdoor learning is also an integral part of our curriculum and each class has access to a stimulating outdoor learning environment. Pupils enjoy accessing our large playground with play equipment, mud kitchen, as well as our large grassy area with willow tunnel. There is a strong emphasis on Physical Development. 

 

Pupils in KTS2 have many inclusion opportunities and often groups join together for activities like P.E. or trips, as well as during playtimes.  

 

CURRICULUM 

 

Pupils in KTS 2 follow either the KTS Developmental Curriculum, or the Formal Curriculum pathway, depending on their individual needs. Some pupils access elements of both of these pathways. Both curriculums are ambitious, coherently planned and sequenced to reflect the needs of the pupils at KTS Academy.  

 

For more information about the curriculum, see the KTS2 policy, below.
