                                                  CLASS ORGANISATION

                                                  Each child is supported and encouraged in all areas, performing at
                                                  a level commensurate with his or her capabilities.
                                                  Teachers  assess  each  child  as  they  enter  Reception  class.
                                                  Continuous assessments also take place during the first year and
                                                  all subsequent years in school.
                                                  Children are taught for most of the time by their class teacher, but
                                                  occasionally by teachers who have a special skill to offer.

                                                  and are used in a variety of different ways to support and enhance
