Staff Allocations

Whilst classroom teacher allocations are normally fixed for the current academic year, due to the varying nature of classroom needs and current funding, our teaching partners do sometimes move between classes, as and when extra provision is needed. Therefore the distribution our teaching partners should only be used as guide to our additional classroom support.
