Our Classes

The school has five classes which means that there are mixed aged groups in each class. At the end of the Summer Term the children are allocated to their ‘new’ classes and spend a day with their new class and class teacher. The class arrangements are organised by the Headteacher and the Senior Leadership Team.

Pupil Welfare

In all aspects of school life we seek to secure the moral, spiritual, cultural and social development of our pupils. Turners Hill is a very caring school. Staff discuss children regularly and those in need of special help are noted by all the staff employed at our school. The Head is involved with all children who have problems of any kind and calls parents in when it is necessary. We value highly the close partnership we have with our parents in all aspects of school life.
