Progression chart

TLC follows the UK National Curriculum guidelines for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS, children aged 3 to 5 years old) and Primary Year groups 1 to 6 (children aged 5 to 11 years old).

Children in younger year groups (ie children aged 1 to 3 years old) follow an early years` programme designed to prepare them for the demands of the EYFS.

The Primary Curriculum is divided into blocks of years called `Key Stages` (KS). Primary Years 1 and 2 are located in Key Stage 1 (KS1). Primary Years 3 to 6 are located in Key Stage 2 (KS2).

The table below provides an overview of progression from Nursery 1 to the Early Years Foundation Stage and finally to Primary (Key Stages 1 and 2).
