School organisation

The school is split into four stages: the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception), Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2.

The school has places for 60 children per year group.


The Nursery is very much part of the school. The staff are integral members of the Foundation Team.

From the term after their third birthday, children can attend either 15 or 30 hours per week. Applications can be made via the school office.

The Nursery is very well staffed and resourced with plenty of indoor and outdoor space for children to thrive.

The Nursery is popular and highly regarded by parents. The following quote is a widely held view amongst our parents –

“We feel [our child] has come on leaps and bounds since [joining the Nursery]  and that is fundamentally down to the amazing teachers and support in the pre-school. We were over the moon to know [our child] has a place at North Primary and we can’t wait to watch him bloom and hopefully ourselves too, become an active part of North.”


The School

We have a class structure in place to teach children in straight year groups, with two classes for year each year group as follows-

Early Years Foundation Stage/ReceptionOur two Reception classes are based in a purpose-built bungalow, offering state-of-the-art facilities with an extensive outdoor play and teaching area.Staff continue to work closely with parents – never forgetting that parents are the children’s first and most important teacher – to enable the children to settle quickly and make strong progress in their first year at school.
