Later Phase

Welcome to...

LATER PHASE!

Our Later Phase consists of:

YEAR 5 (9/10 year olds) & YEAR 6 (10/11 year olds)

Later Phase focuses on ensuring our children are Secondary ready but also "life-long learning" ready! We feel that their experience through Priestmead through Early & Middle Phase will enable them to successfully launch into the next phase of learning.  We introduce more ability grouping in Later Phase as we know this is an expectation in secondary school, but we do not forget they are still children who deserve the exciting, creative and challenging curriculum to broaden their horizons and inspire their futures.

LATER PHASE SRE

In Later Phase, We have a number of girls who are starting their menstrual cycle. In their best interests, we will briefly be discussing very basic puberty changes with the Year 5 and 6 children in same sex groups after half term. This will focus on maintaining hygiene and the scientific facts of puberty changes. 

If you wish to discuss this with your child in more detail details of the Year 5 and 6 SRE curriculum for your knowledge of what is taught later in the school year during the Summer term can be found below:


We must stress that this curriculum content is taught much later in the year – and parents do have the option to opt their child out of SRE. For the time being only basic scientific facts will be discussed with the children with the interest solely of ensuring they are maintaining good personal hygiene.
