As well as the class teacher, additional adults work alongside each class.  During Literacy, children in Foundation Stage and Years 1 and 2 are taught in smaller groups through the Read Write Inc programme and the Literacy and Language programme.  This enables children to have more individualised learning.  During other curriculum sessions work is scaffolded and differentiated to meet the needs of individuals.

Please see our class pages and curriculum pages for more information about individual classes and curriculum subjects.
