About our School


In our school we have 95 children on roll; including 19 children registered in our Nursery who access our early years provision on a flexible basis from the term after their third birthday. Our children are organised into four separate mixed-age classes.

Class 1: Our Early Years classroom hosts our Reception and Nursery children in a large, spacious indoor classroom space with an additional area on an upper floor accessed via a staircase from the main classroom.  We also have a wonderfully resourced outdoor area that is used widely by all the children for a range of different purposes regardless of the weather.   The children are well supported by our Early Years Lead, Mrs Haslam, and a team of highly skilled and passionate teaching assistants.

Class 2:  This class is the home for our Year 1 and 2 pupils who are very well supported by their classteacher, Mrs Robinson and their experienced and committed teaching assistant, Mrs Mason.

Class 3:  Our Year 3&4 class is taught by Mrs Wadey in Hellvelyn Classroom.

Class 4: Children in years 5&6 are located in Scafell Classroom where they are taught by Mr Dean.

Routines of our day:

Children say goodbye to parents on our playground and enter the school building through various entrances from 8.35am.  Learning begins as soon as the pupils arrive and so our children settle quickly within a calm, purposeful and structured environment.  Our registers are taken at 8.45am.  Children arriving after this time receive a late mark and must be signed into school at our main school entrance.

All the children enjoy a morning break.  Pupils in KS1 and EYFS enjoy a fruit snack each morning where as children in KS2 may bring a healthy snack – such as fruit, rice cakes or bread sticks from home.

Each morning we have our daily act of collective worship in the school hall.  Every Friday we have our Celebration Assembly to share our learning and read out the names of children in the Golden Book who are recognised for doing something wonderful. Take a look at our online calendar on this website to find out when our next Celebration Assembly for parents and family members is taking place.

Our Nursery and Reception pupils begin their lunchtime session at 11.45am. All other classes being their lunchtime session at 12noon.  The children eat a hot meal, freshly made on the premises.

Our afternoon session begins at 1pm and school closes for the day at 3.15pm. Our Nursery provision finishes a little earlier at 3pm each day.  Parents come into School playground to greet the children and enjoy the opportunity to talk to class teachers, if necessary, at the end of  the day.   Many of our children enjoy attending YoYo Club which provides after-school care for our working families from Monday to Thursday.  Alternatively, we also offer a range of after-school extra-curricular activities for the children to enjoy around the year.
