At the end of last week the children wrote the names of five friends with whom they would like to be in class with next year. We will do our best to place them with at least one of these five friends. Please understand that it is simply not possible to place them with all five friends. If your child has a specific need that affects their class placement for 2019, please can you provide a brief explanation of this need in writing to me before the end of school on Friday November 2nd. This is an occasion when we have to work to the deadline. So we will not be able to take account of information provided after this date. Creating classes is a hugely complex process that takes the whole of November before we believe we have final drafts.
