Beatrix Potter School

Key Stage 2

Key Stage 2


Parents are asked to record their comments on their child’s reading progress in partnership with school. Homework in Mathematics and English is set. The children are expected to be responsible for ensuring their homework is completed as part of their preparation for Secondary school.

School starts at 9am and the school bell will ring at 8.55am by which time you should be in the playground ready to start school. Lateness is not acceptable without a sound reason. Year one line up in the key stage one playground. Uniform is part of the school ethos and is expected to be worn (uniform details)


Trying to talk to the class teacher in the morning simply halts a calm start to the day. If you need to talk urgently go to the office where they can pass on urgent messages. Do ask to talk to teachers at the end of the day, e-mail the school or hand them a note in the morning. If there is a difficulty they will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time.


Local area trips where the children might walk down the library will not need your permission. Travelling  further a field or with transport will require your permission. Obviously we have to charge (Charging Policy is on our web) but we always aim to keep costs down and we can on many occasions reduce costs by subsidising some trips.

If you are asking someone else to collect you child at the end of the day we must have a letter or an e mail to confirm who this is with. We will not let children leave without permission in writing. If this is a regular arrangement one letter with details will suffice.


Are an important part of our curriculum.  Years 3 &  4 go to a PGL centre and Years 5 & 6 to the National Watersports Centre Plas Menai Wales

ICT work is also a vital part of learning in the 21st Century. Here is just one example of the work our children undertake. Based on Shakespeares Macbeth:  Macbeth

and our robotics artificial intelligence work.  Children are discovering how to program a bot to think ahead about a maze and to test how it decides on its direction and approach.
