Meet Your New Classteacher

Classes for 2020/21

With a Pupil Admission Number of 40 again this year set by the Local Authority we are required to have mixed age group classes at Usk Primary. 

The only year group organised by age will be Reception with the oldest 10 children in the Reception year group joining 19 children from Year 1 in Redwood class. Apart from our Ash class all other classes in the school will contain mixed age groups.

Staff have spent a considerable amount of time constructing the new classes for next year based on the suggestions for friends that were shared with teachers during lockdown. Each class is mixed ability and where achievable, has an equal balance of genders. Children have been placed in classes where staff believe they will achieve the best progress in their learning. They may not be with their best friend but we believe this provides all children with the opportunity to develop social skills as they build new friendship circles with their new classmates. Pupil relationships are a strength of the school and often commented upon by visitors. The way that children at Usk Primary get to work with different ages and groupings fosters this. We also recognise that some children will benefit from becoming more independent or detaching themselves from less desirable partnerships. Therefore, the effect of creating new classes has many advantages.

We ask that parents and carers support the school in helping your child manage the transition to their new class and trust the decisions that have been made.
