The school's pupil admission number (PAN) is 15. This is the maximum number of children that we can have in a year group.
Class 1 - Squirrel Class, is our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) class, sometimes known as the Reception Class. It has a maximum of 15 children in it.
Class 2- Robin Class, is our mixed class of Year 1 and Year 2 children.
Class 3- Fox Class, is our mixed class of Year 3 and Year 4 children.
Class 4- Owl Class, is our mixed class of Year 5 and Year 6 children.
Teaching and Learning in a mixed year group class
With a PAN of 15 pupils, it is necessary for us to organise the children into mixed year classes as explained above, with two year groups in each class. Whilst this is a necessity, there are many advantages for the children to be organised in this way:
- each child spends 2 years with each teacher. This means that the teacher gets to know each child incredibly well and there is a seamless continuation of the learning journey into the second year.
- The children become very familiar with the routines of the class and the expectations of the teacher allowing them to feel confident and relaxed in the learning environment.
