3-7 YEARS
Lower Foundation to Year 2
In Early Years Foundation Stage, children are taught by highly skilled teachers who, supported by their own teaching assistants, ensure that the first years at Carr Lodge Academy are successful and happy ones. In classes buzzing with activity, the youngest children will be absorbed in the fun and adventure of learning.

Years 1 and 2 (Key Stage 1), children build upon the excellent formative experience in Foundation Stage with expert and innovative teaching by dedicated teachers and teaching assistants adding breadth to academy life.

7-11 YEARS
Years 3 to 6
Each class has its own teacher and teaching assistant. From year 5, more specialist subject teaching is introduced. By their final year at Carr Lodge Academy, our aim is to ensure that children in Year 6 are confident and articulate individuals ready to transfer to Secondary School.
