CE Primary Academy

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.

The placement of any particular child in a particular class is at the discretion of the headteacher.

Since September 2005 all teachers in all schools, by law, have to be guaranteed 10% of their timetabled time out of class for planning, preparation and assessment (PPA) tasks. This equates to half a day a week. In addition teachers need extra time for their leadership and management work.

From time to time children may be taught in ability groups.
