Information on our class structure and curriculum in KS2 at SJL
In line with our prospectus, classes in KS2 are mixed ability with some year groups being split year groups. In the case where TEACHING classes are based on ability the pupils parent/ guardian will be notified individually and the reasons explained for the grouping.
In Maths pupils are set as this allows the teaching to maximize the development of pupils skills and understanding. Homework is provided through MY MATHS. Please see the attached link for explanation of how to maximise homework in addition to set weekly HW by class.
