Classes/Size

Our school has the capacity to take 315 children. 

  • Foundation- Acorns there are two class groups, based in one overall Foundation Unit (capacity 45) There are always two qualified teachers with the children and two teaching assistants, providing approx 1:12 ratio when full.
  • Key Stage One- We usually have three mixed year classes (Cherry, Cedar and Chestnut) for Years One and Two; however for the academic year 2020/21 we will have a Year One class (Cherry) and mixed Year One/Two class (Chestnut) and a Year Two class (Cedar) to help us reintegrate these children into school post COVID19 lock down. 
  • 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 do differentiate for ability in all subjects. 
  • Year Five and Six- These year groups are in mixed classes for non core subjects, however there is then a four way split for English and Maths groups. This means we can not only have much smaller groups, yet also means that the learning can be better matched to needs. There are two groups in Year Five for English and Maths and two groups for Year Six. All are taught by qualified teachers.
