We have seven classes in school all named after woodland animals. Our teaching staff stay with the same year group throughout the year and are supported in the classrooms with a very experienced team of 7 teaching assistants who have individual timetables across all of the classes.
Squirrels – EYFS with Mrs de Wet and Mrs Simpson (Wednesdays)
Hedgehogs – Year 1 with Mrs Wright (Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday) and Mrs Scarrott (Thursday and Friday)
Badgers – Year 2 with Mrs Gilchrist
Foxes – Year 3 with Mrs Whitmore
Rabbits – Year 4 with Mrs Adams
Woodpeckers - Year 5 with Miss Parkinson
Owls – Year 6 with Mrs Priestley
At the end of each academic year in June/July we look at the class structure and let parents know which class their child will be in for start of the next academic year. This is done on class size, age and individual need.
