The Atworth base is the larger of our two sites, with a total of four mixed-age classes. The mixed-aged class organisation allows children of all abilities to have their needs met through careful planning that follows their interests. Each class has a teaching assistant every morning to support the teacher, either within the classroom or outside of lessons, as required.
We are lucky enough to have a large green field, which is large enough to hold a whole school sports day, alongside a concreted playground and an outdoor shelter/classroom. Our amazing Parent Teacher Association work tirelessly to keep our outdoor swimming pool running throughout the summer months, and we also have a large Forest School area where children learn additional outdoor and social skills. The children help to make sure that our pond is a suitable habitat for wildlife, as well as maintain their own small garden of flowers and shrubs in summer time.
