About The School
Flushdyke School is a Community Junior and Infants School, maintained by the City of Wakefield Education Authority. It caters for boys and girls from 3 to 11 years of age. Pupils may start school on a part-time basis two terms before the term in which they become four. The school was built in 1912, it has a central hall with four teaching areas, stock rooms, staffroom, library, computer suite, headteacher’s room and reception office. The school had a two-classroom extension built in 2003 and the whole school was refurbished and decorated at that time. At the same time, a Foundation Stage Unit was created, and this opened in October 2003. At present, the school is staffed at headteacher plus four class teachers.
Classes comprise of mixed-age groups, which are currently organised as follows:
Class 1 Foundation Stage
Class 2 Y1, Y2
Class 3 Y3, Y4
Class 4 Y5, Y6
Class 1 is supported by a full-time Nursery Nurse and a Teaching Assistant; other classes are supported by full-time Teaching Assistants. Our school has a positive ethos which aims to celebrate success and we have high expectations of our pupils. Staff work together as a team in a friendly, cooperative atmosphere and are supported by a committed governing body. We have recently been awarded the Investor in People standard for the second time.
