Class Organisation

Class Organisation
 
Pupils benefit from our rural first school organisation as they are taught in mixed age classes. School staff plan and work closely together and offer teaching expertise and strengths across different year groups. Teaching assistants provide support in both key stages and where necessary, assist with individual and small group intervention.
