At IES schools the average is to have one adult to ten students. The adults could be teaching, support or admin staff.
The IES model differs from that used in many other schools. We have dedicated support staff, including Student Health and Student Care Teams, who work alongside the teachers and support them in areas outside of their expertise. While this can mean that our class sizes are a little larger, it also means that we have a system in place with staff who are devoted to helping maintain a safe and calm environment in our corridors and classrooms. This support helps our teachers to focus on teaching and our students on learning.
