Team Structure


Hordle Primary School is a 1 1/2 form entry primary school. This means we admit 45 children each year.


In the Foundation Stage we keep the children together split across two teams, with 2 teachers. This means that your children get a good start in a smaller class.

After that, our teams are organised into vertically grouped teams. This means we have 3 parallel year groups in each phase.

1 x Year 1 team, 1 x Year 1/2 team, 1x Year 2 team, 3 x Year 3/4 teams, 3 x Year 5/6 teams

Team Sizes

In Key Stage 1 our teams are limited to 30 in a team by law. The governing body have set a limit of 33 in the lower juniors and 34 in each upper juniors team.


All our teachers are highly skilled and experienced at managing the mixed age teams and ensure that, through differentiated teaching, activities and questioning, children of all abilities are supported and stretched.

Team Names

We are very fortunate to live in a truly wonderful part of the country. Therefore, apart from the Foundation Stage, our teams are named after aspects of our locality which were chosen by the children themselves. Children are encouraged to find out interesting facts about their team names and are encouraged to develop a sense of community and belonging in their team.
