Good Afternoon,
We provide our students with 4 lessons per day per class. We have 15
classes at the school.
During the week commencing the 13th November 2017, 60 lessons were
presented at the school from Nursery through to year 6. Thus bringing the
weekly total of lessons to 300.
From these 300 lessons, 40 of them were delivered by L4 teaching
assistants who provide PPA cover at the school.
I hope this answers your query. 
Thank you
