Owls Class consists of Years 1 and 2. Children are taught in a bright, modern classroom with access to a secure outside learning area.
Children are taught through topic based, cross curricular themes and enjoy a wide range of curriculum enrichment activities both in and out of school.
Outside learning is a strength of our school and we are situated in an idyllic setting, with extensive outside space, including a dedicated Forest School area, with a purpose built outside learning shelter, that can be accessed by children at all times.
Wellingtons and old clothes are part of our school uniform!
Swimming every Friday morning is at 'Port Regis' School, near Shaftesbury
Sports coaches teach Games on Friday afternoons
PE Kit can be worn all day on a Friday.
Early Years provision is Good-Ofsted 2014.
"The leadership of Early Years is Good. The children are quickly learning classroom routines and cooperate well togethr. This is due to the calm, caring approach of the teacher, together with a well planned classroom and exciting activities" Ofsted 2014.
"Pupils settle quickly to tasks and are keen to complete them to a good standard" Ofsted 2014
"Relationships throughout the school are effective and based on mutual trust and respect. Break and lunchtime are harmonious because pupils thoroughly enjoy the extensive playground, field and wild areas.They all bring old clothes and wellington boots so they can build dens and play football in all weather conditions, which boost their personal, physical and social skills." Ofsted 2014

Pupils I spoke to take great pride in their school and appreciate the care that they receive from staff. Parents and carers are very positive about the school’s community spirit and supportive ethos. One parent’s comment was typical of many: ‘Our children are extremely happy and do well because of this safe and nurturing environment.’
