 A Class Teacher is responsible for each class and gives class, group or individual teaching according to the child’s needs.  Extra input is given by the Support Teacher, Teaching Assistants or Deputy Head.  At times there is regrouping according to needs/interests.

 Our part-time teaching staff* are deployed to support the teaching and learning of our classes to facilitate the teachers’ entitlement to 10% non-contact time. Job-shares also operate.
