Class Structure

We have five classes for our seven year groups, Reception through to Year Six, therefore the School has mixed age classes.


The class structure changes each year according to the size of each year group. We use several factors to decide where each child is placed.


These include:

  • The size of each year group and the capacity of the class (30 maximum)
  • The child’s date of birth
  • The child’s maturity
  • Social groupings
  • Progress and ability.


In 2016-17 the class structure is:




Eagle Class - Y6 taught by Mrs Karen Goodby

Kestrel Class - Y4/Y5 taught by Miss Laura Moran

Falcon Class - Y3/Y4 taught by Miss Laura Howard.




We are introducting a new structure in KS1.  There will still be two KS1 classes; but in the morning the children will be taught in single year groups as follows:


In the mornings:


Barn Owls - Reception taught by Mrs Gemma Blake-Hatton & Mrs Meena Purba

Tawny Owls - Y1 taught by Mrs Louise Newman

Snowy Owls - Y2 taught by Ms Caroline Smethurst.


In the afternoons:


Owl Class 1 - Reception/Y1 taught by Mrs Gemma Blake-Hatton (Mon-Weds)

                   Mrs Meena Purba (Thurs-Fri)

Owl Class 2 - Y1/Y2 taught by Ms Caroline Smethurst.
