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
  • Siblings
  • Age and maturity
  • Friendships
  • 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.
