Birchwood Grove CP School

Our school day

The capacity of Birchwood Grove is currently 420. We have two classes in each year group across the school with 30 in each class. For most of the day pupils work with their own class teacher in their classroom, assisted by trained teaching assistants. There are times throughout the day where children may work in different groups including phonics, spelling and languages.
