Benefits of your child attending a small school

At Finstock, we feel incredibly fortunate to be able to bespoke the education for each of our pupils. Having small numbers in the school allows us to ensure we identify gaps in knowledge, understanding and skills and place them in homogenised groups to close those gaps effectively. This strategy prevents children from having interventions at other times of the day and missing out on a broad and balanced curriculum. Whilst we strive to ensure all children are working at, or above 'age related expectations' (ARE), we know that prerequisites must be embedded before moving on. We extend the school day for some of our pupils to pre teach before school and post teach after school.
