FOUNDATION STAGE and KEY STAGE ONE
At All Souls’ there is one Reception class that works within the Foundation Stage (Ladybirds). There are three vertically grouped classes in Key Stage One that follow a parallel curriculum fully in line with current legislation and the National Curriculum (Dragonflies, Bumblebees and Caterpillars). At specific times during the week the classes are grouped according to age and ability to further facilitate the teaching of all National Curriculum subjects including the Literacy and Numeracy strategies according to need.
Although grouped in classes, children are taught individually or in small groups according to their needs, ability and progress. This process is enhanced by keeping the class sizes small, the extensive use of Teaching Assistants, and voluntary support from parents. Mrs Hart, Inclusion Lead, ensures that additional learning support for children is provided when required.
Continual teacher assessment, agreement trialling, our own assessment on entry and completion of the Foundation Profile are carried out in the Foundation stage.

KEY STAGE ONE
In Key Stage One, teacher assessment, agreement trialling and SATs at the end of the Key Stage help identify the individual needs of the children and in the planning of programmes of study appropriate for each child. All Year 1 pupils complete the new phonics test. Pupils are tracked through the Key Stage to ensure they always make the best progress possible.
The key to good learning at this, and any other age, is enjoyment. We group subjects into topics and ensure the children are active learners.

Key Stage Two
In Key Stage Two, the children are arranged in three classes of Lower Juniors (Sharks, Dolphins and Stingrays) and three classes of Upper Juniors (Penguins, Turtles and Orcas). We also have an additional class, Oysters, where Mr Day teaches Year 6 Maths. They are taught according to the National Curriculum Guidelines, with an emphasis on enjoyment of learning and a focus on the skills needed to be successful learners.
All children are taught according to their individual needs and levels of attainment through individual, year group, or class teaching. Continual teacher assessment and information obtained through regular end of year standardised tests help identify the individual needs of the children and how they may be most effectively grouped and taught. Pupils are tracked and monitored to ensure that expected progress in maintained.
At the end of Year 6 the pupils leave All Souls' School. There is a county procedure for transfer to Secondary School which is followed by all Kent schools. Details of this will be made available to all parents at the appropriate time.
The schools normally considered by parents are:
- The Harvey Grammar School (Selective Boys)
- The Folkestone School for Girls (Selective Girls)
- Brockhill Park Academy
- The Folkestone Academy
- Turner Free School
We have close links with our local secondary schools to make the move onto the next school as easy as possible. There are procedures in place for children who may need additional support with the transition and Mrs Hart liaises closely with the secondary schools to access this support where appropriate.
