A little more information about the structure of the school

The number of pupils on the roll is approximately 630  and we have class sizes are 30. Within each class, pupils are taught individually, as a group, or as a whole class but always according to their needs and abilities. We run a number  of intervention groups to focus on specific children and their needs.

All children between the age of 4 and 11 study a curriculum which has been designed with the children's education in mind. Reception follow the early years curriculum and Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 follow the Key Stage 1 and 2 curriculum as well as enhancing this with our school intent 'Communication' which focuses on reading and communicating well with the world around them through various forms.

The school is divided into houses (Robins, Kingfishers, Parrots and Canaries) which are led by house captains.  The school has a good music provision and also good links to MfL through our links to  the Italian consulate who provide a teacher for the school
