Organisation of Classes

Yarlside provides education for children aged between 3 and 11 with one class for each year group. We are a medium sized primary school with 218 full time places and 26 places for both morning and afternoon nursery provision.

The Nursery class offers both morning and afternoon sessions which run from 8.45am until 11.45am and 12.15-3.15pm. Children are entitled to 15hours nursery provision the term after they turn 3 years old. Parents of children who attend morning sessions can choose to extend provision to full day by paying for extra sessions. Further details are available from school.

There is also a Private Pre-school Nursery ‘Little Stars’ on site which takes children from 2yrs old. This is run independently from Yarlside Academy.

Each class has a teacher who is responsible for the class organisation, planning of work and monitoring and assessing the progress of the children in that class.

We have a large number of support staff including Teaching Assistants, Senior Teaching Assistants and Higher Level Teaching Assistants who support the teachers to provide the best possible education for our pupils.
