Class & Learning Organisation

Children are organised into five main teaching groups. Teaching of the core subjects of Maths, English and Science takes place mainly in the mornings. Other subjects are taught in the afternoon sessions.
Pupils in Reception are in the Foundation Stage. Pupils in yrs 1 and 2 are in Key Stage 1 (KS1). Pupils in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are in Key Stage 2 (KS2).
Much of the teaching takes place in groups – the grouping arrangements remain flexible in order to allow for a range of social and academic interactions. Some of the teaching takes place individually and some with the whole class. The ranges of groupings allow more able children to work alongside older children where appropriate.
