Our published admissions number for each of our seven year groups (Reception – Y6) is 45.  These year groups are structured into 11 classes, all named after birds, as shown in the table below.  Our Nursery class, Penguins, are taught by Mrs. Ann Fisher (Mon -Wed) and Mrs. Jackie Wyard (Wed – Fri).  We admit children to our Nursery at the start of the term after they have turned 3-years-old and offer 30-hour places for eligible children.  Please get in touch with Mrs. Gennery, our Admin Assistant, for any queries about our Nursery provision.

  • For 2020-21, to address some of the loss of learning caused by last year’s school closure, we have re-structured our younger classes into 3 parallel Reception and Y1 classes.  This allows our Y1 pupils to benefit from an approach to their curriculum more in line with that in the Early Years to help them make rapid progress and reach age-related expectations by the end of the year.
  • As a result, Y2 are taught in 2 smaller classes, again, to enable them to receive even more tightly targeted support in mastering fundamental skills in reading, writing and maths.
  • Our Key Stage Two classes (years 3, 4, 5 and 6) are grouped into two age phases: Lower Key Stage Two (Y3 and 4) and Upper Key Stage Two (Y5 and 6).  Each age phase is then made up of 3 parallel classes.  These have an equal split of both year groups, both genders etc, and are not ability based. This structure allows our staff to share their strengths by working collaboratively, and allows us to look at social and friendship groups when structuring classes in this part of school.
