Organisation of classes

The governors are committed to keeping class sizes small wherever possible.

The school can currently admit up to 45 children in Reception and 40 in each subsequent year.


Foundation children are split into two classes with a mixture of F1 and F2 children in each. Each class has a class teacher who will work with them for parts of the day. At other times they will work as year groups or altogether in the Foundation Base. A level 3 teaching assistant /NNEBs and two level 2 teaching assistant also work with the children.


The rest of the school is organised into bases with three classes in each base.

Key Stage 1:                       Years 1 and 2

Lower Key Stage 2:             Years 3 and 4

Upper Key Stage 2:             Years 5 and 6


Each pair of year groups are organised into three classes.  Usually one of these will be a mixed age class. The way we split the children into classes will vary year to year as we look at the particular characteristics of the year groups involved and the needs of individual children. The factors we consider may include the age of children, their ability and their social groupings.
