School Organisation

Children joining us in Reception will be invited (with their parents) to a series of induction sessions to introduce children to life at Leighterton and to give adults background information on our learning policies and school procedures. Induction programmes operate in the term before a child joins school. Our Foundation Stage Leader visits as many other early years settings as possible to develop links with new children. Parents of older children are encouraged to visit the school by appointment before making a positive decision for their child to join our school.

Our classes are currently organised into:

  • Apsemore Class: Foundation Stage
  • Bowldown Class: Years One and Two
  • Haymead Class: Years Three and Four
  • Ridge Class: Years Five and Six
