Class Groups

The school caters for 50 children who are taught in 7 classes and are grouped according to their ability and learning need. This ensures the learning strategies and curriculum are the most effective for the pupils and that they have a suitable peer group to support their holistic learning needs. They are called Acorn, Willow, Maple, Hazel, Beech, Oak and Pine.

To find out more about what each class are up to, please look on their class page.

There is a high adult to child ratio in each class to support the different needs of the children. A Speech and Language Therapist is attached to each class for two days a week and an Occupational Therapist for one day a week. Some additional Speech Therapy days and a permanent Occupational Therapy Assistant attached to the school ensure those with more complex therapy needs can access the provision they need to overcome their additional learning barriers.

We cannot thank you enough for all the time and effort you have put into our son. You are amazing and we appreciate everything you have done for us as a family.
