SKIPSEA PRIMARY SCHOOL ACADEMIC YEAR 2019 TO 2020
From September 2019, due to cohort sizes, the school will be organised into three mixed age classes as follows:
Class 1 will be a mixed Foundation Stage 1 and Foundation Stage 2 and Year 1.
Class 2 will be a mixed Year 2 and Year 3 class.
Class 3 will be a mixed Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 class.
The school website will continue to provide medium term planning information for parents and members of the public each term about what the children in each class will be learning about in different areas of the curriculum. Each class has a blog on the website which may also provide information about what the children have been doing. At least once a term, Parents and Carers (or other family members) are invited into ‘Show and Share’ sessions where they can look through the children’s work with their child across different areas of the curriculum.
Parents or members of the public who want to find out further information about our curriculum can contact the school and arrange to either speak to the relevant Class teacher or the Assistant Head or the Head teacher (Mrs Shiels).

Please note the child/young person does not need a diagnosis or need to have a statement or Education, Health and Care plan for the parent carer to attend.
