Many village schools have mixed-age classes throughout school. Here at Starcross we are very fortunate to have single age classes throughout the school. Wherever possible, the school will always try to keep class sizes down to the lowest numbers possible. The maximum number allowed in a Key Stage 1 class is 30.
We have a music specialist in school, who delivers high quality music lessons to children, and classes enjoy, wherever appropriate and necessary, support from teaching assistants.
The current class setup is as follows:
Reception Class (Sandpipers) – Mrs Watson / Mrs McLaren
Year 1 (Kittiwakes) – Miss Lax / Mrs. Radcliffe
Year 2 (Curlews) – Miss Hirst
Year 3 (Oystercatchers) – Mr Collett
Year 4 (Avocets) – Miss Mann
Year 5 (Razorbills) Mrs Vanderford / Mrs Jackson
Year 6 (Puffins) Mr Cross
We pride ourselves at the school on the quality of the teaching, and the wonderful range of opportunities that the children are given to learn in every area of the curriculum. We always say that the best way to see this is to come and visit us, and see for yourself! The doors are always open, and all visitors get a very special welcome.
