Split Year Groups

Our September intake is 20
In Year 1  the 20 stay together in Maple Class.
In Year 2 the 20 are split between Maple and Cherry.
In Year 3 the 20 are reunited in Cherry Class.
In Year 4 the 20 stay together in Beech
In Year 5 the 20 are split between Beech and Chestnut
In Year 6 the 20 are reunited.

At the end of each academic year, we look individually at each child in Year 1 and Year 4 and decide on those who would benefit from continuing in their current class and those who are ready to face the challenge of a class with older pupils.  Age is not a factor, greater emphasis is put on the suitability of the individual child which  is the most important consideration before any decision is made.
