Year 2 & 4 class-mixing
I am sure that you are already aware that we consider mixing classes at the end of Year 2 and Year 4 each year.
There is often a benefit in mixing classes to balance gender, ability, additional needs and personalities. It’s also good for children to experience at least one transition whilst in the safe and familiar environment of primary school - it can stand them in good stead.
This year, given the present pandemic and after careful consideration, we have decided NOT to mix classes ahead of September. It is our opinion that to do so would create an additional layer of uncertainty for children, which would not be in their best interests.
We will revisit the situation at the end of next year (ie Y3 & Y5) and, if we feel that it would be beneficial, we will communicate this to you at this time.
If you have any questions or queries then please do not hesitate to contact me.
With best wishes,
