School Organisation

St James' CE Primary School is currently organised into 3 classes as follows:

Ash Class - Reception & Yr 1

Elm Class - Yr 2, 3 & 4

Yew Class - Yr 5 & 6


    (Yrs 4,5 & 6, 2015/16)

As in most smaller rural schools where the intake number is not large enough to support discreet year groups, every child will at some point need to spend more than one year in the same registration group. Rather than taking the easy option of drawing lines by age alone, we look at individual pupil progress and social and emotional development and base our judgments on what would be best for the child. Children benefit from our ability to shift the dynamics of a class and to tailor their education to best fit their individual needs.

While it is inevitable that numbers in some classes might be higher, children are often grouped and taught in much smaller groups. Teaching Assistants play a very important part in the school and the children benefit greatly from the presence of additional adults in class.
