The way things are on the site , not sure if I'll get a reply this evening but hope some of you kind folks are out there.... Well it's that same old chestnut, whatever you decide about class arrangements you are going to upset somebody! ( we are a small school with mixed aged classes and I gave details of classes 3 weeks ago) Can't go into too many details but my decision was based on needs and attainment levels in a number of year groups. Class sizes are equal but slightly different arrangement from last year. I'm expecting at least 1 of the 2 parents who have been trying to drum up support in the playground tomorrow morning. I have no problem with my decision but wondered how others have handled this one in the past. Give details? Tell them that I cannot give details but decision made in best interests of the children? I've tried screaming and banging my head against the wall - in private - wasn't that helpful. I have full support of governors. Any advice.
