rhif safonol / standard number = 65 pupils in every year group (52 prior to Sept. 2009)
cyfanswm / total = 520 o disgyblion
(plus nursery pupils who are non-statutory)
“It is statutory that authorities limit infant class sizes (excluding nursery classes) to no more than 30 pupils and best practice to ensure junior class sizes do not exceed 30 pupils.”
If KS2 classes exceed 30 pupils, the Key Stage 2 Grant awarded to schools will be clawed back.
2010-2011 = £25,004
Exceptions to these regulations (called “excepted pupils”) which may allow the 30 pupil class limit to be exceeded.
These pupils are:
(a) children whose statements of special needs specify that they should be educated at the school concerned
(b) children initially refused admission to a school, but subsequently offered a place outside a normal admissions round by direction of an admissions appeal panel, or because the person responsible for making the original decision recognises that an error was made in implementing the school’s admission arrangements

Well-being of children and their families

Children make and break friends on a regular basis
Children left out
Discrimination “I don’t want my child in a class with that child”
Ffrindiau / Friends
Transparent data – but not always easy to justify teacher assessments
Everyone clear about reasoning and policy
Staff have more input into educational needs of learners e.g. special needs / able and talented
Narrower range of ability in each class
Labelling children at an early age
Well-being of less able pupils (all pupils have a positive contribution to make)
Parents not in agreement with professional judgement of staff
Children split from friends
Datblygiad / Development
