How the school is organised
The structure of the school may change from year to year. The Headteacher and the governors will decide on an appropriate organisation to meet the needs of the children and the demands of the National Curriculum within budget constraints. Currently, the school is organised into two teams:-
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) & Key Stage 1 (Year 1, Year 2) and Key Stage 2 (Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6 )
In Key Stage 1, mathematics and reading skills are taught in ability groups for regular periods during the week. In Key Stage 2, mathematics and English are taught in ability groups, with the Upper Junior pupils spending more time in single year groups. Ability groups are determined by the results of the Key Stage 1 SATs, teacher assessments and other test results. Groupings are regularly evaluated, children are able to change groups during the year as their performance changes.
