Class Structure

The school takes in pupils of statutory school age from 5 to 11 years.
There is also a policy to accept rising 5s.

The classes are structured as follows:

CubsReceptionFoundation curriculum
LionsYears 1 and 2Key Stage 1
TigersYears 3 and 4Lower Key stage 2
LeopardsYears 5 and 6Upper Key stage 2


In each class the children are grouped and the work differentiated according to their age and needs.
A child working with others in different age groups further enhances the strong family atmosphere of Eastling School.

Although two age groups share one class, it's important to realise that the difference between one year and the next could be the difference between being born on August 31st and September 1st.

Work is set on ability rather than age - higher attaining children can be stretched by engaging in the work from the year group above.
