Reception transition to Year 1

Dear Parents / Carers

In previous years Reception classes have been ‘redistributed’ at the end of the year to create two new classes, which would then stay together from Year 1 to Year 6. This year we will not be doing that. The classes are broadly similar in terms of attainment, additional needs and other key demographics, factors which would be taken into account when deciding on a class split. We also wanted to consider how to give the greatest amount of continuity to the current Butterflies class considering the changes to their teaching arrangements during this year. Both classes have made excellent progress during their first year at St Thomas Becket and we look forward to seeing them continue to develop in future years.

Kind regards,

Mr Skehan
