Class Groupings

It is the guideline of the school to mainly have parallel or mixed ability classes in all grades. Most classes are composites, meaning there are 2 grades in 1 room such as Years 3 and 4. At times classes will need to be spread across stages such as Year 2 and 3 (Stage 1 and Stage 2).

We take great care in ensuring that every student is placed in a classroom that best meets his/her needs. Factors such as learning and social benefits are of prime importance.

Special groupings also occur across the school the promote student’s academic and social learning. These include graded mathematics groups in Stages 2 and 3, reading/spelling groups in Stage 1 and buddy classes from Kindergarten to Year 6.

We have a highly productive learning support team that provides advice and support for students in the form of small group learning sessions and individual assistance with School Learning Support Officers (SLSOs).
