Many schools mix classes up each September. This is something that we are thinking about doing as a school. We spoke to Parent Forum on Wednesday 28th March, who were largely in favour of the idea. We agreed to take this idea to a full school consultation.
Why would we mix?
How would we do it?
Do other school do this?
Yes. And whilst there is no hard evidence of positive impact there are lots of opinions that this really makes a positive difference in schools
How will it work?
The idea is (just to stress that nothing is set in stone, part of the consultation is to get views so things can be changed) that each July children would be “mixed”. This would create two new classes, a mixture of the two current classes. To support this change we would have a transition week where children would work in their new classes with their new teachers, in July. The new classes would then start from September. Play times and lunchtimes would remain the same so children would be able to choose who they play with. We would not swap whole classes around at any other time in the year, only for September.
Closing date: Midday on 20th April
