The School Day

Class Structure

We currently have eight classes and a nursery class. Teachers plan carefully and thoughtfully to match their teaching to pupils’ different abilities and needs, for example, through group work and through supported programmes of teaching at the appropriate level. We allocate teaching assistant hours to each class to support this differentiation.

Teaching Hours

Our school day begins at 8.50 a.m. and finishes at 3.20 p.m. Key Stage 2 children, (Juniors), have 25 hours 50 minutes teaching time per week. Early Years and Foundation Stage, (Reception children), who are full time and Key Stage 1 children have 23 hours 45 minutes teaching time per week. The Nursery is open for 27.5 hours each week.
