Our school has the capacity to take 315 children. 

  • Foundation- Acorns and Saplings there are two class groups, based in one overall Foundation Unit (capacity 45) 
  • Key Stage One- We have three mixed year classes (Cherry, Cedar and Chestnut) for Years One and Two. They are mixed ability for non-core subjects, yet we do ability group for Reading, Writing, Maths and Phonics.
  • Year Three and Four- There are three mixed year classes (Hawthorn, Hazel and Holly). There remains a key focus on reading and phonics in early Year Three to support the move from KS1 to KS2. We differentiate for ability in all subjects within lessons taught in classes.  Maths is taught in three ability groups.  
  • Year Five and Six- These year groups are in mixed classes for non core subjects and English.  For maths, there are four ability groups which means the learning can be better matched to needs.
