The school does provide a variety of clubs throughout the year. Some are run by external providers and some by school staff. Information about school clubs can be found on the website.
Reception Class
The school admits 60 children into the Reception class.  There is a strong emphasis on reading, writing and mathematics which is taught through play opportunities, whole class learning groups, small group work and individual input.  Children are assessed very carefully by staff through observing their work and they are grouped and taught according to their needs.  There are opportunities throughout the day to use the grounds to learn and children also benefit from working with visitors and taking educational visits to other areas.
