Rush for places at 'outstanding' school in Broadway
2:00pm Saturday 28th September 2013 in News
SINCE it was graded as ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED in March, applications to attend a school in Broadway have risen.
Neroche Primary School is becoming the increasingly-popular choice for families in the area – so much so that it has opened a new year one class for its 18 five-year-old pupils.
Head teacher Connel Boyle said: “It has been really pleasing to see pupil numbers steadily grow.
“We have increased our number of classes this year from five to six as we are totally committed to keeping small class sizes and high staff-to-pupil ratios so we can continue to improve both social and educational outcomes for our pupils.”
The school now offers single age classes for reception, year one, year two and year three, and operates two mixed age fear four/five and year five/six classes.
Mr Boyle added “As reported nationally, pressure upon primary dchool places looks set to increase in the next three to four years and, ideally for Neroche Primary School, we would love the school to continue its steady, planned growth so we can develop single age classes for years four, five and six as well.”
