Class 9 contains Year 5 pupils.

Class 11 contains Year 6 pupils.

Assessment and Reporting

All children are continually assessed and parents are informed of their child’s progress at Parents Evenings and in a written report at the end of each school year.

In addition children in Year 6 are required to sit National tests in English reading, English grammar, punctuation and spelling and Mathematics. 

Transition to Senior School

At the end of Key Stage 2, Year 6 children leave Primary School.

Most of the children in Year 6 move to Rainford High Technology College. Children visit the school and meet some of the staff and pupils during their time in Year 6 and this makes the children’s transition to their new school much easier.
