Our school consists of a total of ten classes, ranging from Foundation Stage to Year 6, allowing for smaller class sizes (where possible), with a maximum of 45 in each year group.  The class teachers are well supported by Teaching Assistants.

 The classes are organised into three key stages:

 HOUSES

Every child is a member of a House Team. We have four Houses (Allen, Nash, Palmer and Wood). The children are awarded house points and the house with the most points are awarded the house cup at the Celebration Assembly on Friday.  The children also have inter-house events throughout the year and compete for their house on Sports day.
