About Our School
Teaching is generally in mixed-age classes with year groups varying in size. Arrangements are flexible, however, to maintain optimum class sizes and some year groups may be taught on their own as a small class.
The newer part of our school which was built in 1966, houses two Key Stage 1 classrooms (Reception, Years 1 & 2), a large, well-equipped sports hall, a new library built in the Summer of 2011, school and Head's office, staff room and food technology area. The other classes (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6) are split between the older part of the school, which has two classrooms and a mobile classroom. Each classroom has an interactive white board, a visualiser and computers, which are linked to the school network and the internet.
Outside there are both grass and hard play areas, a KS1 covered activity area, storytelling area, wild garden, vegetable garden and a pond (used in science lessons). On site we also have an outside classroom and a learner swimming pool, both of which are maintained by the PTA. A short distance from our school there is also a large sports field, which is used for sports and environmental education.
