Later in the Term, we will begin to compile class lists for 2018. A great deal of care and time is taken with decisions about class placements. It is important that the group dynamics within classes, are such that students bond well and harmonise as a group.
When forming classes we aim to have an even spread of ability levels across each class. We also consider the match between individual children's learning styles and teachers, and try to ensure that all children are in a class with students whom we feel they are likely to form friendships and work well together with. We may choose to separate students who, whilst being friends, are a distracting influence on each other in the classroom.
Parents who have any information they would like considered (that is educationally relevant), of which may provide assistance with the compilation of 2018 class lists should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5.00pm Friday 27 October in order for this information to be considered when forming classes. Please note that all information provided by parents will be considered, however the final decision of class placements will be made by the school. Thank you for your understanding of this process.
