Classes at John Mayne
John Mayne has a five class structure.
With seven year groups we will always have some mixed age classes.
Our approach is to take a holistic view of each child and the overall balance of each class to make the best learning environment for everyone in the school.
We take the following into consideration:
- Attainment in the Foundation Stage profile or teacher assessments
- Combining children into teaching groups so that staffing and interventions can be managed efficiently
- Age and maturity
- Balance of class sizes
Currently class are
Foxes - Reception
Hedgehogs - Year 1
Rabbits - Year 2
Squirrels - Year 3 and Year 4
Badgers - Year 5 and Year 6
We take seriously a commitment to ensure that children continue to make good progress whichever class they are in and carefully monitor the progress of every child in the school.
