Primary schools in the United Kingdom consist of the years that deal with the formal education of students. It is commonly considered the learning process that begins when a person is a child. A child will enter primary school once they have completed nursery classes. The typical age range for students who enter primary school is four. When students complete primary school, most will be seven years of age. In the UK, grades may be referred to as being "years." When children attend primary school, their parents will not be present. The children will continue taking classes until they are ready to advance to the next level, which is called secondary schooling.
The children will be placed in a class where they will receive instructions from a teacher for the course of about one year. In addition to instructing the students, the teacher will also be responsible for their welfare in the absence of their parents. This teach may receive assistance from other teachers who specialize in various areas. An example of this would be the subjects of health or music. A high value will be placed on teachers who are able to build a strong bond with the students they teach. A number of changes have been attempted in the last few years which break the traditional class structure. The primary goals of primary schools in the UK is to give students a simple understanding of literacy and numerical concepts. It is also expected that students will become familiar with science, history, and geography.
