During the time that pupils spend at Beecroft Primary School their education will be organised within:
|Foundation Years||Ages 3-5||Nursery and Reception|
|Key Stage 1||Ages 5-7||Classes 1 and 2|
|Key Stage 2||Ages 7-11||Classes 3, 4, 5, and 6|
The children are divided into classes of mixed ability according to age and are taught by a class teacher who has overall responsibility for their well being. At some stage in Key Stage Two Maths and English are taught to groups of children having similar ability.The Headteacher is involved in this teaching so that the groups are very small. Able children are catered for in higher ability sets for Maths and English. Additional help is available in the classroom from a support teacher or teaching assistant. Work is finely tuned to all abilities and we have an excellent record of high standards from all abilities. There is an additional teacher or teaching assistant at some time in every class. When children start school they are organised into two small classes of 22 or 23 pupils with a teacher and teaching assistant.
The school employs well qualified support staff and two nursery nurses who work with children throughout the school.
