Welcome to the 'Class Pages' section of our website. Please click the tabs to find out everything you need to know about each area at Barrs Court Primary School.
Barrs Court Primary School is split into 11 classes. Each year group can have a total of 45 children therefore we split them into three mixed classes in each phase, e.g. Red Area three mixed Year 1/2 classes; Blue Area three mixed Year 3/4 classes and Green Area three mixed Year 5/6 classes. Our Reception children are split into two Reception Classes who mix together in the same area.
For the Year 2021-22, Red Area have a structure of one Year 1 class, one Year 2 class and one mixed Year 1/2 class to support the fact they had missed some schooling due to Covid19 lockdowns.
Children's classes are mixed each year with the children's best interests at the forefront of the decision-making process and there are a number of factors at play when deciding which class they will be in. Some of these factors include: children's academic ability, their relationships with peers and staff, their age, number of children within the year group and social and economic factors. We have to consider the best way to meet the needs of all children in the year group.
If you would like to find out more regarding these decisions, please speak to a member of staff.
