Class Pages


ImageOur Nursery is a HAPPY, busy place where children feel secure and gain independence. Every day there are wonderful new things to do and to learn. Nursery promotes enquiring minds and equips children with the skills, knowledge and positive attitudes that are all key to future success.

Our Nursery Manager is Mrs Armstrong.

Lower I (reception)

Image In this first year of compulsory education children ENJOY their learning. They have many opportunities to experiment, discover, understand and develop as they relish learning to read, write and understand numbers. All of the time children are encouraged to develop good relationships, manners and behaviour.

Form I (year 1)

Children are EXCITED by the first year of Key Stage 1. The teaching and learning is more formal but still very interactive in both core subjects (English, Mathematics, Science and Computing) and foundation study (History, Geography, Design Technology, Music, Art, PE, RE, PSHE and Citizenship)

Mrs Kitson is our Class Teacher.

Form II (year 2)

In this last year of Key Stage 1 we aim to create INDEPENDENT and CONFIDENT learners who become great problem solvers! Team working continues but individual tasks encourage greater focus and quicker reaction as we prepare children for work in Key Stage 2.

Form III (year 3)

The first stage of Key Stage 2 is undoubtedly a "bit of an ADVENTURE". Learning now demands self motivation, organisation and the willingness to rise to a challenge. It is more structured and requires self (rather than Parent) organisation to manage class work and homework.

Lower IV (year 4)

ImageYear 4 children assume an even greater responsibility for their own learning. They relish a CHALLENGE and gain the confidence, enthusiasm and motivation to explore new skills and knowledge.

Middle IV (year 5)

The classroom atmosphere is very energetic, very productive and full of FUN. Every child's success is encouraged and celebrated, as is an interest in learning which extends beyond the classroom. Children move into their final Gleddings year with very good skills, high self esteem and a CAN DO attitude.

Mrs McHugh is our Pastoral Leader and Mrs Parsons teaches English and leads a team of specialist teachers - Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Wilde (Mathematics), Mrs Jackson (Science) and Mr Dignum (English)

Upper IV (year 6)

Image The final year is a preparation for life after The Gleddings. DESTINATION SCHOOL EXAMINATIONS (11+ for local Grammar Schools, Independent Grammar School Entrance Examinations and Common Entrance) are a priority but so are the LIFE SKILLS of team working, communication, Computing, problem solving and care of others. The year ends with a FIT FOR LIFE programme which includes problem solving, enterprise skills, managing money, personal presentation, PowerPoint, public speaking, citizenship, law and the legal system, British constitution, outdoor pursuits, being healthy and safe, DIY, feed yourself, basic sewing AND A SLIDE DOWN THE BANNISTER (well they have waited for 8 years to do it!)

Mr O'Rourke is our Pastoral Leader and Mrs Chapman teaches English and leads a team of secondary school specialist teachers - Mr Storer (Mathematics), Mrs Jackson (Science) and Mr Dignum (English)
