Children across all key stages are taught for the majority of the time by their class teacher, but will encounter other teachers. In all classes children are grouped in order that work can be tailored to their individual needs.

 

Collective Worship

Collective Worship takes place every day, normally for the whole school. As this is a church school, collective worship is predominantly Christian in nature and includes prayer. The format of the worship is informal and non-denominational but is in line with the principles and practices of the Church of England.

Under the 1944 Education Act, parents have the right to withdraw their child from collective worship, by notifying the Headteacher in writing.

Each Friday we hold a ‘CELEBRATION’ assembly where we celebrate children’s achievements in all aspects of school and community life. The parents of participating children are warmly invited to attend.
