We are a one form entry school which means that we have only one class per year group. Each class has 30 pupils; 7 year groups.
Each class has their own classroom. Each class has its own class teacher. We have additional spaces and rooms that are used for group and individual teaching and specific activities such as music. All our teachers are fully qualified to work with primary aged children and together have a wide, rich range of experience, abilities and skills which they bring to the life and work of our school. Teachers are happy in this school.
We also welcome newly qualified teachers and have strong links with Reading University. All our class teachers are assisted by a great team of support staff. Teachers and pupils take great pride in their classrooms, ensuring that the children’s work is on display and that everything is well organised and well-presented. This is vital in creating the right atmosphere for learning.
At Farley Hill teachers adopt a range of teaching styles and strategies, dependent on the activity / lesson objectives. Each week there will be occasions when your child will work individually, as one of a pair, as part of a mixed ability group, an ability group and as a member of the whole class.
