The number of children on roll is usually around 85 and the school is organised into 4 mixed- ability classes.
- a reception and year one class of children 4 years to 5 years
- an infant class of children 5 years to 7 years
- a junior class of children 7 years to 9 years
- a junior class of children 9 years to 11 years
Within each class the teacher is responsible for the whole curriculum. In all classes there is variety of group and individual teaching methods. Learning Support Assistants help within each class and provide support and extension for children throughout the school, using a range of intervention programmes.
The school is part of the Westgate Pyramid of schools.
The designated secondary school is The Westgate School with whom we have close liaison. Many children attend Owslebury School from outside the catchment area and choose different schools for their secondary education. We work very closely with each of these to ensure a smooth transfer.
