The School Day

 

ORGANISATION

The school is divided into year groups and each is the educational responsibility of three or more teachers plus, especially at infant level, classroom assistants. There are usually about 30 pupils per class; our infant classes have no more than 30 pupils. We review classes at the end of Year 2 and Year 4 and some reshuffling may take place at these points to maintain balance across the year groups.

 

Phase leaders have an overview and responsibility for the day to day running of the year groups as follows:

Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception)

Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2)

Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4)

Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6)

SCHOOL SESSION TIMES 

8.30am - Voluntary staff open the playground gates and monitor the playground, when possible, for the children who arrive early. Our aim is to ease the community congestion so that 742 children do not all arrive at the same official starting time.
