School Organisation
  • Children are taught in parallel classes in each year group throughout the school from Reception to Year 4.
  • Class ratios of teachers to children are 1:30 throughout the school. Classes are of mixed ability and grouped within, to meet the needs of all children.
  • A classroom assistant works in every year group. Children with additional needs are supported by SEN teaching assistants.
  • Staff plan together in year group teams, ensuring equality of opportunity for the children.
  • Children are taught for the majority of subjects by their own class teacher, with some interchange of staff according to subject specialisms.
  • All classes are taught by a higher level teaching assistant for one session a week to allow teachers to plan, prepare and assess the children’s work to the very highest standards. (PPA time)
