Class Organisation 2014/2015

St George’s organises the class structure into 2 phases: Phase 1 covers nursery, reception, years 1and 2. Phase 2 covers years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Each class will have several teaching assistants attached. One appropriately trained teaching assistant will be responsible for taking the class for limited periods due to the absence of the class teacher.
