The Nursery and Reception children each have their own play area. The older children share a large play ground at the rear of the school.
There are four teams of staff who work with different age groups:
- Foundation Stage Nursery and Reception staff
- Key Stage 1 Year 1 and 2

Each team is led by a senior teacher who is responsible for the immediate management of the staff, pupils and parents of those pupils.
