In the first two years of primary school your child will experience the same sort of learning and activities they were used to in their early years – this is called the Foundation Stage. The next two years are called Key Stage 1 (P3 and P4) and the next three years are known as Key Stage 2 (P5, P6 and P7). On completion of seven years of primary education, children transfer to post primary schools at the age of 11.
There are a small number of schools which cater solely for Year 1-3 or Year 4-7 age ranges.
