The education system in the UK is organized so that children pass through different stages. They begin in the Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception classes) progress into Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) and then move into Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5,and 6) the final part of the Primary Phase. Transfer to Key Stage 3 begins the Secondary Phase.
At Four Acres we have an admission number of 45, which means we have some mixed age classes. Our reception classes for 4 year olds are smaller than average as we keep all these children together in two classes. We then have Year1 and 2, Year 3 and 4, Year 5 and 6.
We also have a well-established nurture group class (Sunflowers) which runs in the afternoons. Children in Sunflowers receive support to remove any barriers to learning they are encountering. They attend for as long as they need before returning to their own class on a full-time basis, typically within two to four terms.
