Shawhead Primary School

Classes

 

Organisation of Classes

Shawhead School currently has one full time teacher and two part time. The children are split into two classes – P1-4 and P4-7. They are taught in these classes mainly but also learn in multistage groups from time to time. Whilst they have a main class teacher, all pupils will be taught by all class teachers at some time in the week/term. The children will be in different groups for different subject depending on the Curriculum for Excellence level they are working at. These groupings will change as pupils develop at their own pace.

 

Composite Class Size Policy

There are national and local agreements in Dumfries and Galloway about class sizes in primary school. Under present arrangements class sizes are determined by the number of pupils on the school roll and the finance available for staffing.

Currently no single-age class should be greater than 30 in P1, P2 and P3 nor greater than 33 in P4 – P7. No composite class should be greater than 25.
