Powell's School Church of England (VA) Primary School

School Organisation

The school is organised into 14 classes with 2 classes per year group. Children join Early Years in the September following their 4th birthday and the Governors adhere to the KS1 class size legislation.

The leadership team consists of the Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher, 2 Assistant Heads one for each keystage. Working alongside the members of the SLT are 2 Middle Managers responsible for the Performing Arts and Outdoor Learning. The school is divided into phase teams led by SLT and Middle Managers as follows;

  • Early Years
  • Key Stage 1
  • Lower Key Stage 2 (year 3 and 4)
  • Upper Key Stage 2 (year 5 and 6)

All Curriculum areas have a subject leader who has overall responsibility for that aspect of the Curriculum throughout the school; however English and Maths have a subject leader within both Key Stages. Members of the Governing Body are also linked to each of the Curriculum Areas.

Private instrumental lessons are available for pupils from Year 3 upwards; our specialist music teacher runs a Wind Band, Orchestra and Choir which all meet weekly to practise their skills, have fun and prepare for performances.

The School has a Performing Arts specialist teacher who teaches dance from Years 3 – 6.

French is taught from Year 3 by our specialist French teacher and our art specialist teaches within KS2.

All pupils receive a 6 week block of Forest School each year. Eco Warriors and the School Council meet regularly and contain members from each year group – please see their group pages for more information and photographs of some of the activities they take part in.
