Townsend is a one and a half form entry county primary school for infant and junior children with two part-time Nursery classes. This means we can admit 45 children eligible to start school each year. We have approximately 276 children attending the school (estimated roll January 2001 – 296). We have 50 part-time nursery places.

The school is organised into eight mixed ability classes, with a ninth class opening in January for a further reception class.

Classes may change in structure each year but will be composed of a semi vertically grouped class of children with combined age ranges, e.g. a class consists of some children from Year 4 and Year 5, whilst another class consists of Year 3 and Year 4 children. We can have some classes of one year group, but this changes depending on our numbers. Yrs Reception 1 and 3 have all been one year group in the past.

The children are taught by a variety of methods as appropriate including whole class teaching/discussion, working in groups and individually so that children can work at their own level in any particular area of the curriculum.
