The school has two classes in Years 3 & 4, and three classes in Years 5 & 6.

Each year group team has a year leader, class teachers and teaching support staff. The classes are managed by the class teacher with support from the teaching support staff. Occasionally within a class there may be a child who has been assessed as having particular learning or physical needs, who will have an additional teaching support assistant allocated to them.

All admissions to Deansbrook Junior School are handled by the London Borough of Barnet and all applications should be made via the local authority's admissions portal. Children are admitted to the Junior School in the September following their 7th birthday and at any time until the July after their 11th birthday. Where applications exceed the number of places available, children will be offered a place according to the following criteria:
