Due to the increase in numbers in Key Stage 2 in 2015, we opened a third class. This was for 2015-17 to begin with but our numbers have remained buoyant and so it has become a permanent part of our school structure.We were pleased to welcome Mr Andy James as our new teacher; he brought to the school a range of skills including sport and languages. This expansion took us to six classes for the first time which was very exciting!
Our new class needed a name and the children and staff felt it was time for a change. After consultation with the school council a range of ideas were suggested. The most common theme was the natural world, animals, birds, trees as examples. We looked to the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust for inspiration and have chosen six different species to represent our classes all of which are significant in the county.
The majority of our pupils arrive with us from the age of 3 and leave in the July of the year they turn 11. Some children , with Autumn birthdays,may spend up to 9 years with us. The majority of children have a Nursery year and then Reception,followed by Years 1 to 6. With 8 years and six classes all children will spend two years in two of their classes as they travel through the school. Which two these are depends first and foremost on the child and their needs. It may also be influenced by the number of children in any one cohort and other factors such as space and ensuring the best spread of resources and teacher's time.
