Children are taught in mixed ability classes if it is appropriate to do so. Placement is generally by age/maturity or friendship groups and classes often include children from more than one year group.
Fluctuating numbers inevitably mean that the composition of classes may vary from year to year. Infant class sizes are limited to a maximum of 30 children.
This academic year we have 241 children on roll, taught in 9 classes with 12 teaching assistants, plus a part-time special educational needs coordinator (SENCO).
