The composition of individual class groups and the allocation of teachers to particular classes is decided by the Principal following consultation with teachers and specialist teachers. These are very complex decisions with students' abilities, students' interactions with others and teachers' strengths being some of the determinants in the composition of class groups and the allocation of teachers. As the decision regarding the composition of class groups is a complex issue requiring careful consideration it is unlikely that students will be changed to another class following a request.
Some students may be placed in a multi-age class when there are insufficient numbers of students to have a full class for these year levels. When this occurs two year level groups are combined. For example, a multi-age class may contain students from Year 5 and Year 6.
These classes are no different from single year level classes, as in all classes, all students are treated as individuals and not just as a group of particular year level students. Each student progresses at their own individual level in all subject areas and therefore commences the year with different developmental levels and needs. In any one class this difference could equate to a significant difference in students' abilities, and programs are adjusted accordingly to meet each of thier needs.
