Leigh Primary School

Our Classes and Timetable

Leigh Primary School caters for children from the ages of four to eleven within six classes.

We allocate children to classes using a variety of factors, including maturity, and ability.

Because of our small size, all staff know the children well. Children will often stay with the same teacher for more than one year, or may meet their teacher again later on in school. This enables our staff to have a good overview of the progress of all the pupils in the school.

We have six main classrooms currently in school, along with our mezzanine room which is used for breakout and intervention groups run by our SENCo and other support staff. Children are grouped in various ways throughout the school day according to ability or for other reasons, and for different curriculum areas. On occasion, children may spend time with other classes who are working at levels more appropriate for an individual child. Teachers use regular assessments and analysis of assessment data to provide intervention groups for children who require additional support or stretch in different subject areas.


Doors open for the children at 8:30 and they can go straight into class where there will be activities and busy work for them to complete suited to their learning needs. They will organise their belongings and be greeted by their class adults. Registration is at 8:45 and we expect for families to be prompt to avoid disruption and late starts to lessons. Collection is staggered from 3:10 until 3:20 to help with congestion around the school site and to help parents collecting children of multiple ages.

School hours are therefore: approximately 32.5 hours a week including lunchtime. Lunchtime begins at 12 for 3 classes and 12:15 for the last three classes and ends at 13:00 and 13:10 for respective classes. Children are given a morning break at 10:25 until 10:45 to have a drink and a snack.
