In the current class structure pupils at Westfield Primary are taught in classes of two age groups. Teachers at the school recognise that mixed-age teaching is a challenge where they must constantly adapt their approach. A high level of flexibility and organisation in lesson planning is required to ensure that teaching caters to both age groups and all abilities within the class. The small size of the school means that teachers know most pupils personally and can learn about their individual needs easily. A two year rolling programme for foundation subjects ensures that pupils do not repeat topics and regular continuous professional development allows teachers to refresh themselves with new texts.
