The Mount Stewart Schools

Key Stage 2

Key Stage 2

Our children experience fun, interesting and exciting learning, focused around a variety of practical activities with tangible outcomes. All primary age groups are taught the subjects specified in the National Curriculum: English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, Geography, History, Art and Design, Design and Technology, Physical Education, Music and Spanish. Religious Education and Relationship and Health Education are also taught in addition to the above subjects. However, our curriculum is not restricted or defined by the National Curriculum, which simply provides a framework for our teachers. Our teachers provide a wide range of experiences that promote and develop skills beyond those referred to throughout the National Curriculum.


Each day a proportion of time is dedicated to the teaching and learning of key skills in Reading, Writing and Maths. The rest of the school day is then dedicated to these skills being applied in various different and creative ways through a range of learning experiences that reach the wider areas of the national curriculum and beyond.  However, teachers and classes have the freedom, and are encouraged, to be immersed in these learning experiences and not always be restrained by sticking to timetables.
