The majority of children who attend Crompton Primary are placed into age group classes
that contain a full range of abilities and as far as possible, a balance of boys and girls.
Within the classroom, children are taught in a variety of different ways. They are taught in
whole classes, smaller groups and individually.
For most of the time the class is taught by the class teacher, but there are periods when
team teaching, group teaching and specialist teaching takes place. There are also
arrangements made for groups of children to work with non-teaching assistants and
governor or parent helpers, where the work has been planned by the class teacher.
Classes will also receive support from the multicultural service.
The school is divided into 7 classes plus Nursery, catering for the age ranges. On average
there are 30 children in each class.
