School Structure

Runnymede St Edward’s is divided into three departments, although we operate as one school:

  • Foundation Stage: Preschool and Reception
  • Key Stage 1: Prep 1 and 2
  • Key Stage 2: Prep 3, 4, 5 and 6

Each class has a full time teacher and a classroom assistant. Preschool to Prep 2 have qualified Nursery Nurses.

Our children (Prep 1 to Prep 6) remain in their classes for the majority of lessons, but they move to specialist teaching rooms for Music, French or Spanish and Computing. Preschool and Reception receive specialist lessons in their own classrooms, supporting their continuous provision.

Preschool and Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Framework. The learning journey throughout the school follows National Curriculum guidelines but our staff have the flexibility to adapt and extend the activities to suit their pupils' needs.

Children are eligible to join our Preschool class from the start of the new term following their third birthday. Preschool is an important part of the child's familiarisation with school life and routine, and provides a strong foundation upon which to build when the child enters Reception.
