Meet the team

For the safeguarding of the children, all those who work in school either on a paid or voluntary basis are required to go through the DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) procedure.

Senior Leadership Team

Our Classes

Class Teachers are responsible for the everyday teaching and learning of their class and each has responsibility for an area of the curriculum. Learning Support Assistants are deployed across the entire school. They have a key role in helping children overcome barriers to learning. They may support in class or deliver specific programmes for small groups or for children who need some extra support, for example with Reading, Spelling, Maths, Co-ordination or Social Skills. Higher Level Teaching Assistants carry some additional responsibilities, including some whole class teaching to release teachers for assessment, planning and preparation time and to cover short term absence.

The school is arranged into 10 classes, all named after trees.
