Learning

Victoria is primarily a Church school, and then a community school.  It is maintained by the Church of England Diocese of St Albans, with support from Hertfordshire County Council, and educates children aged from 3 to 7 years old.

We specialise in Early Years teaching, and cover two key stages in your child’s education:

  • Foundation Stage:      Nursery (age 3-4) and Reception (age 4-5)
  • Key Stage 1(KS1):      Years One (age 5-6) and Year Two (age 6-7)

We have a Nursery class which currently has provision for 45 children in morning-only sessions with the option to purchase wrap around care every lunch time and afternoon. Nursery provision is constantly under review to ensure it meets the needs of the school, Parish and school community.  Nursery is housed in a purpose built building with separate secure access.

Each subsequent year group has two classes with 30 children in each.  Each class has a class teacher and the classes work in close co-operation within an environment with adjoining parallel classes.

The teachers plan and evaluate the work together and discuss the progress achieved. Teaching assistants support all classes. Inclusion teaching assistants are deployed to help children with specific learning needs as required. All the teachers and teaching assistants regularly attend professional development training.

The classrooms are arranged in three double units, one for each year group; Reception, Year One and Year Two. The hall is central within the school and is used for assemblies, PE and music. The school is fortunate to have a separate dining room and dedicated ICT classroom.
