Class Organisation

Children are grouped co-educationally according to age on a mixed ability basis. The (Published Admission Numbers) for each class is usually 30. There are three forms in each year group. Our current capacity is 630.

  • Early Years – Willow, Chestnut and Hazel
  • Year 1 – Cherry, Apple and Pear
  • Year 2 – Maple, Holly and Rowan
  • Year 3 – Silver Birch, Copper Beech and Poplar
  • Year 4 – Lime, Pine and Juniper

In a normal school week, 23 hours and 20 minutes are spent within direct teaching time at Early Years (ages 4-5) and Key Stage 1 (ages 5-7). At Key Stage 2 this is extended to 24 hours and 35 minutes. Breaks and assemblies account for the balance.
