Homeroom

The mixed-age Homeroom groupings will be used for some of the cross-curricular and child initiated sessions, removing the assumption that children learn best in same-age groups.

The reasons for our vertical groupings are:

  • to encourage children to get to know each other very well throughout the school;
  • to enable older children to have positions of responsibility, and roles within the groups that promote a supporting, nurturing environment;
  • to allow effective cognitive and social development through interacting with different aged children;
  • to give the opportunity for role-modelling excellent, positive behaviour and expectations;
  • to promote peer-support and a love of reading, as children share books with each other and read together;
  • to give a strong emphasis on community and citizenship.

This process will be under continual review to ensure its ongoing success.
