|Structure and organisation within our provision|
We are a small rural primary school with 105 full-time places for 4-11 year olds. Each year group from Reception to Year 6 has a planned admission number of 15. Children are taught in four classes, as detailed below. Each class has its own class teacher and attached support staff.
♦ Early Years: Reception (4-5 year olds)
The Reception class is taught by two class teachers across the school week. The class teaching assistant is in class each morning and 4 afternoons per week.* The class is largely based in the hub of the school to enable as much free-flow between the indoor and outdoor learning areas as possible. The children also have access to facilities such as the hall and their own playground
♦ Key Stage 1: Years 1 and 2 (5-7 year olds)
The Year 1 and Year 2 class (Class 1) has a full-time class teacher and their own full-time teaching assistant* The class regularly make use of their outside area and the playground, where they have both a morning and an afternoon playtime and designated PE sessions.
♦ Key Stage 2: Years 3 and 4 (7-9 year olds)
The Year 3 and Year 4 class (Class 2) has a full-time class teacher and a teaching assistant each morning and two afternoons per week* The children have a more extended school day with no afternoon break, and have the use of playground as well as the upper mezannine levels for small group work.
♦ Key Stage 2: Years 5 and 6 (9-11 year olds)
In Years 5 and 6 (Class 3) there is a full-time teacher and a teaching assistant each morning and two afternoons per week* These older pupils take increasing responsibility within the School community as they prepare to make the transition to secondary school.
*Further teaching assistant support may be provided according to the needs of individuals or groups.
Working together, aspiring for every child to be curious, determined, resourceful and respectful.
