School Closure

If the school is closed due to bad weather, parents will be informed by the school texting service and on the school website.

School Organisation

The school is organised in three stages: the Foundation stage (Nursery and Reception class), Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6). Each class has places for 30 children, with the exception of the Nursery which has spaces for 26 children.

Your child’s first class will usually be the Nursery or Reception class. It is for children aged 3 to 5 years old. It has two dedicated class teachers, two nursery officers. If your child joins later on, the class they join will always be dependent on their age. These will be Year 1 for 5-6 year olds, Year 2 for 6-7 year olds, Year 3 for 7-8 year olds, Year 4 for 8-9 year olds, Year 5 for 9-10 year olds and Year 6 for 10-11 year olds.

Each class has its own class teacher. All our teachers are fully qualified to work with primary aged children and together have a wide, rich range of experience, abilities and skills which they bring to the life and work of the school. Our class teachers are assisted by a dedicated and experienced team of support staff, including office staff and our site manager.
