We have 72 pupils currently on role, organised into three small classes. With an average class size of only 24 pupils we offer all our children a personalised approach to learning, nurturing them to achieve the best that they can.
The children are taught in three mixed aged classes, with a planned admission number of 11 new children each academic year.
Class 1 - Reception and Year 1 (Mrs Ellis-Stansfield)
With only 22 children in Class 1, Mrs Ellis-Stansfield ensures the children in Reception (EYFS) and Year 1 receive a flying start during the early years of their school journey. Working alongside the EYFS teaching assistant, Mrs Wootton, and Mrs Marshall-Clarke, our Associate Teacher from Sheffield Hallam University, enables a truly nurturing and bespoke curriculum to be tailored to both year groups.
Class 2 - Year 2 and Year 3 (Miss Crumbleholme)
There are currently 22 children in Class 2. This small class size enables Miss Crumbleholme and our teaching assistant, Mrs Nightingale, to build on the solid foundations set in the early years, whilst preparing our children for the transition into Key Stage 2. We believe that keeping our classes so small enables a very personalised approach to teaching and learning; providing a bespoke programme of study for our children with SEND, whilst ensuring challenge and depth of learning for our most able children.
Class 3 - Year 4, 5 and 6 (Miss Woodward)
By the time our children reach Class 3, they have become independent and resilient learners and enjoy the challenges of working with their peers from three different year groups. With only 28 children, Miss Woodward ensures the children in our oldest class leave Peover Superior as confident and self-assured individuals, well prepared for the next stage of their education. The Principal, Mrs Hesmondhalgh, also teaches Class 3 for several mornings a week.
Mrs Hamilton, our Interventions Leader, works with children from across school, tailoring bespoke and personalised teaching programmes to individuals and small groups. This may range from booster sessions for our most able children to 1:1 Reading Programmes to ensure rapid progress for children with SEND.
