How are classes organised?

There are approximately 650 children at South Rise and the school is organized in the following way:

  • Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS) caters for children from 3-5 years old and is known as Nursery and Reception.
  • Key Stage One (KS1) caters for children from 5-7 years old and consists of Year1 and Year 2.
  • Key Stage 2 (KS2) caters for children from 7-11 years old and consists of Year3, Year 4,   Year 5 and Year 6.
  • The children in each year (Reception to Y6) are grouped into three mixed ability classes.

 Every class has a qualified teacher and all classes in the EYFS and KS1 are supported by a teaching assistant. In KS2 there is a teaching assistant working across each year group and support staff are allocated to classes based on the needs of the children.
