In all phases teachers have planning, preparation and assessment (PPA) time together. This ensure teachers can share planning and skills sets and subject interests.
PPA release time is covered through:-
Spanish lessons taught by a qualified Modern Foreign Language (MFL) teacher Miss Barrett, music (Mrs Jones) and RE lessons led by class teachers. In the school we are also fortunate enough to have a qualified ‘Forest School’ teacher, Miss Lund, who takes Year 1 and 2 pupils for ‘Forest School’ sessions on a rota basis so that all KS1 pupils have two terms of Forest Schooling each year.
EYFS pupils also have Forest School sessions through outside qualified ‘Forest School’ instructors.
