Parents will know that we will have 11 classes in school next year (we currently have 10). This will help us to reduce the number of children in KS2 classes and reduce the number of mixed-age classes.
This plan is dependent on the construction of a new classroom on the patio area. This project is underway and the governors are working with Diocesan fundholders to ensure that we have an affordable high-quality outcome.
We are advised that our new teaching space will most likely be available for use from January 2018 – although there are still some issues to manage for the governors.
In the interim, we have had a re-organisation of school to enable us to have 11 classes from September. The staffroom has been returned to its former use as a classroom and Class 5, taught by Miss Garnett, will be taught there.
Class 5 children will use the hall doors to enter and exit the school from September.
