Langford Village Academy has eight classes. Each class has its own class base and teacher with teaching assistant to work alongside the teacher. In addition we have a number of children supported by specialist teaching assistants to help them with their individual needs.
Attached to the school is an inclusion class from Ivel Valley School. This class offers a very valuable provision to specific children who received additional support. The school inspectors found the success of the inclusion class to be one of the strengths of our school.
Classes plan work together wherever practical. The school has a number of recognized teaching mentors and as such periodically has additional ‘trainee’ members of staff who work under the supervision of more senior staff.
We are situated in the village of Langford opposite the Parish Church. The school consists of a single storey building which has gradually been extended to provide good accommodation for our children. We have a large well equipped early years unit with its own playground and equipment. Seven classrooms and a hall cater for the children in Key Stage 1 and 2. We are fully equipped for Computing with internet access throughout the school. The playground is divided into active and quiet area with shelters and seating spread around. There is a large field that is used whenever the weather permits.
We have a well stocked library in a purpose built room. We have a wide selection of books for children to borrow, or use for research. There is a computer in the library which scans and electronically stores all the details of the children’s reading habits.
