Our Classes

Willow Class is where our pre-school children are educated and nurtured. The school admits children from the term after their third birthday, and children remain in Willow Class until they enter the main school in Year 1 (the September after they turn 5).

Ash Class is the base for the children in Years 1 and 2 (ages 5 to 7). Here, we take the solid foundations laid in Willow Class and develop the children’s ability in all areas, but particularly in the fundamental skills of English and Maths. The children receive daily phonic lessons in ability groups until they have mastered the complicated alphabetic code of English, and then are taught more advanced skills commensurate with their ability. These groups are of rarely more than ten children.

Oak Class consists of the children in lower Key Stage Two, in Years 3 and 4 (ages 7 to 9). In this class, the children develop their learning in all areas. For those who have not yet fully mastered phonics, their daily sessions continue in ability groups, enabling those who have finished our phonics scheme to receive advanced lessons in reading and writing.

Beech Class is where our children in Years 5 and 6 learn and study (ages 9 to 11). By this age, nearly all the children have a highly developed understand of English and Mathematics; those few who may still need extra help receive targeted support on an individual or group basis.
