Classes and Teachers

Children are grouped into three year groups and there are three or four mixed ability classes in each year group.  Our classes are named after our abundant local wildlife.

  • Year R (reception year for four to five year olds)
    In September 2018 there will be three YR classes: Ladybirds, Butterflies and Bumblebees.
  • Year One (five to six year olds)
    The three Y1 classes are named as follows – Owls, Robins and Woodpeckers.
  • Year Two (six to seven year olds)
    The four Y2 classes are named Hedgehogs, Foxes, Rabbits and Squirrels.

In addition to a fully-qualified teacher,each class has a full-time learning support assistant.  Also, there is one full-time ELSA (also the Librarian) who works with children across the school.


‘In all lessons, group work is especially well planned, with highly skilled teaching assistants supporting learning exceptionally well.’

98% of parents/carers (who responded to the July 2017 parent survey) agree or strongly agree that the school provides a secure, stimulating and engaging learning environment for their child.
