Staff and Classes

We are a one-form entry school, meaning that the children are spread across seven classes; one for each year group ranging from 4 and 5 year olds in Reception to 10 and 11 year olds in Year 6.  Theoretically no class is greater than 30 in number, although parents have the right to appeal for places, meaning that, on occasion, numbers do rise above this number.

Reflecting our rural location, each class is named after a woodland animal.  Our class names are as follows:

Reception Hedgehogs
 Year 1 Caterpillars
 Year 2 Owls
 Year 3 Chaffinches
 Year 4 Robins
 Year 5 Cuckoos
 Year 6 Goldcrests
