Starfish Class - EYFS, Y1 and Y2

General Information about Starfish Class

Starfish, the first of three classes at Grade-Ruan School, is a Foundation Stage classroom. Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. This helps to create a "family feeling" and activities can be provided according to invidividual needs.

See below for a link to this term's class newsletter.

The class teachers are Sandra Birchmore and Karenza Dowker, assisted by Sue Codling. All are very experienced practitioners.   Grade-Ruan is also a training school for a number of teacher training schemes, so we often have student teachers working with us. Depending on the size and needs of the class, we sometimes have another teaching assistant working with us for part of the day. The Head Teacher often pops into the classroom to get to know the children.

Our school secretary, Miss Louise Walder, is in the school office and can answer queries about policies, forms, events, uniform, school dinners etc.

A more comprehensve break down can be found in the Grade Ruan Welcome Booklet for Parents - see the link below.
