From week 7 of this term student class placements will be considered and formulated. In consultation with present class teachers, learning support teachers and Head of Year, I will be compiling class lists for 2018. Factors which must be taken into account include; a balance of male and female (where possible), academic ability, as well as social and emotional development. Due to the many other factors involved in balancing classes, parental request can only be met in exceptional circumstances. If you believe that such circumstances apply to your child a request must be made in writing to me or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 13 November.
No requests can be met after this date. Circumstances change from one year to the next, so please do not assume that last year’s request will still apply. Also, please do not ask your child for a preferred teacher as this does not constitute an exceptional circumstance.
When writing your request, please indicate your reason for your request. Unsubstantiated requests will not be considered.
Details of your child’s class placement will be sent to you in the Parent Information Pack in January 2018.
