Organisation

There are currently 570 children in the school organised into 19 classes (3 Foundation, 6 KS1, 10 KS2). Each intake of 90 is divided into three classes with the current Y5 and Y6 having two classes each. The teachers in a year group plan together and ensure that their classes follow the same stimulating curriculum during the year, incorporating knowledge and the development of learning skills. Within each class work is differentiated according to their ability where appropriate, ensuring challenge for the most able and aiming for depth of understanding for all.

 

All classes are connected to a computer network with tightly controlled internet and email access, using a purpose built ICT Suite and mobile laptop suites.  Y6 also have a suite of Chromebooks.  The school advises on virtual learning opportunities for the pupils to access from home, with Y6 maths homework being completed online.   All classrooms are fitted with high definition screens which are invaluable as an exciting and stimulating learning and teaching aid. 

 

Playtimes are staggered to allow the maximum of play space for all year groups.  Lunch is taken in the hall and the children can select their home cooked food from a variety of options (there is always a vegetarian option).  Children having a packed lunch eat alongside those having a school catered meal, as we consider eating lunch to be a social occasion.  Children may select whether to have water or milk with their lunch.
