The pupils are grouped into four classes, which are identified as: Bears, Butterflies, Badgers and Beavers. They include age ranges as follows:-
|Bears||Foundation||4 to 5 years|
|Butterflies||1||5 to 6 years|
|2||6 to 7 years|
|Badgers||3||7 to 8 years|
|4||8 to 9 years|
|Beavers||5||9 to 10 years|
|6||10 to 11 years|
Age ranges in the three classes may overlap; where it is considered appropriate, in order to meet the particular needs of individual children.
To take the best possible advantage of curricular expertise, the staff may teach their specialist subjects in classes other than their own.
Children may also work in a class to which they are not permanently assigned, in accordance with any particular strength, weakness or personal interest.
Children may be taught in whole class or small/large groups depending on the lesson structure.
