We are a Community Primary School and are part of the Cirrus Primary Academy Trust, taking both boys and girls from many cultural backgrounds, between the ages of 3+ and 11+. There are two Nursery classes and a Primary Hearing Centre.
The Nursery classes take children for either morning or afternoon sessions. The children spend a school year in the class.
The Centre for children with hearing impairment takes pupils aged 3+ to 11+ from throughout the Borough. The Centre is an integral part of the school and the children join in all school activities and integrate into main school classes when appropriate.
We are a four-form entry school, with a fifth 'bulge' class currently in Year 1, 2 and 3. Each year group is led by a senior teacher who has responsibility for the day to day running of the year team, and who liaises with the other year group leaders to ensure continuity in children’s learning as they move through the school. The teachers in each year team work together to plan the detail of the curriculum.
We also employ teaching assistants, nursery nurses and a behaviour mentor who work alongside the teaching staff, providing valuable additional support for the children.
We have Pupil Support Assistants (PSAs) who work with children who have special educational needs and a number of teachers and bi-lingual assistants who work with children for whom English is an additional language.
