Class Formation

Class groupings at St Monica’s Primary School are formed to provide a learning environment which best meets the needs of the children. Due to enrolment numbers and the number of classrooms within the school St Monica’s is required to offer a combination of single grade and multi-age class groups. This combination may vary depending of the variation in grade enrolment numbers from year to year.

 

Procedure

Consideration will be given to the following factors when forming class groupings.

 

Advising the Parent Community

Whenever there is a need to change the existing school class structure the Principal will consults with the teachers and the Council Executive prior to finalising the decision and advising the school community.

 

Parents are provided with the opportunity to speak with the Principals and if required will be provided with the opportunity to attend a meeting to clarify parental concerns or questions, relating to the multi-age classroom.

 

Class groups are distributed in the last week of Term 4 to the school community
