As Spetisbury is a Primary School, we cater for the last part of the Foundation Stage (Reception), Key Stage One (Years 1 & 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6).  Children are organised into 6 classes. KS2 is organised into 3 classes, 2 of which are mixed-age classes.


The classes are each named after English woodland animals as suggested by the School Council. Each class has a teacher and teaching assistants working with them.


We also benefit from Dorset Music Service who teach an instrument to the Year 3/4 class for a block of time each year, and from a team of Sports coaches who work with groups throughout the week and help to provide some of our after-school clubs.
