Avening Primary School


We have four classes at our school, all of which are named after birds.


The Eagles are just beginning their school life - with children in Early Years and Year 1. They are taught by Ms McKenzie, class teacher, and Mrs Carter and Mrs Boulton, teaching assistants, who follow the children's interests and facilitate learning experiences. The Eagles love spending time in our School Garden - building dens, playing imaginatively and looking after nature. 

To see more about the Eagles class, take a look at the Eagles blog page which is updated with information about the children's learning regularly.

For more information on how the Early Years are organised at our school, please click here for the EYFS Policy 2017.  


The Kestrels class is our class of Year 1 and Year 2 children. They are taught by Miss Ellis, with the support of teaching assistant Mrs Amos. This class is busy, practical and filled with enthusiastic learners!
