Bradworthy Primary Academy has opened up a seventh class for the first time in its history. This initiative has come only a year after the school became North Devon’s first primary academy and it means that our children are now taught in small single-age class groups, rather than in big mixed year groups.
We achieved another historic first last month when the school roll passed 150 children.
In last year’s SATs results Bradworthy featured among the top schools in the country and this new class will be an important part in ensuring that we are able to maintain these standards into the future.
We have worked hard to reduce class sizes because we believe this plays such an important part in children’s learning and development and it is a huge step forward that our average classes are close to only 20 which is significantly lower than the national average
