There are currently 412 children in the school, with a waiting list for most age ranges. The school has 14 classes in total catering for the full ability range across Early Years, KS1 and KS2 of the National Curriculum. Class teachers assume responsibility for the children’s welfare and for the delivery of the Curriculum, but planning is a shared activity. Due to its popularity and government funding the school moved to two forms of entry as of September 2009 this meant that we changed from vertical grouping to straight aged class teaching. The school has benefitted from having a brand new extension to the building housing all the infant classes. Also newly built are the school offices, ICT and music rooms and kitchen.
Early Years Key Stage 1 Key Stage 2
Reception Years 1–2 Years 3-6
The Hayes operates a staggered opening time when children are encouraged to arrive at school between 8.45 and 8.55am and go straight to their classrooms where their teacher will be. Before 8.45am the Education Authority is not responsible for the safety of children on the school premises.
On arrival to the school the children should go directly to their classroom. All children must be in their class by 9am for registration. For security reasons, we ask those parents who need to come into school building to go via the school office.
