It is already the time of the year when we begin planning for next year. Teachers will shortly commence the process of class placements for 2022.
We always give serious thought and consideration to our decisions about class construction and where children will be placed to best suit their learning needs, friendship groups, behaviour, gender balance, special needs, class size, previous placements as well as any other special considerations. This takes time and a great deal of critical reflection on behalf of the teachers and SSOs as we consider all of these aspects for each child's placement.
Our staff know individual students well and also know how they connect with others to support learning outcomes. Ultimately the responsibility of class placement rests with the school but our choices are based on the shared wisdom between home and school. Parents can write to leadership regarding particular learning needs of their child or to inform us of additional information that we should have on record. This information needs to be submitted to the leadership team in writing by Friday 16th of October 2020 (the end of Week 1 Term 4). All requests must be submitted via the Leadership email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that requests for or against particular teachers will not be taken into consideration.
If your child is not returning to Dernancourt School in 2022 please complete the e-form in our Skoolbag app.
