School Organisation

The children are organised into classes of mixed ability and, where necessary, mixed year groups. Great care is taken, however, to ensure that all children are following programmes of work appropriate to their age and ability and appropriate layer of challenge. The placement of any particular child in a particular class is at the discretion of the senior leadership.

All Read, Write, Inc. work is undertaken in streamed groups. All streamed groups are reviewed regularly and are fluid - thereby enabling pupils to receive the appropriate level of challenge at the right moment. We will actively use this strategy to ensure that our children receive teaching precise to their starting point - this may be in any area of school.
