Parents' survey with regard to changing the policy on assigning students to class groups in Second Year
Changes with regard the policy on assigning students to class groups have been discussed at Board of Management level. It was agreed at the most recent Board of Management meeting that representatives of parents and teachers would meet to discuss any change in policy. The outcome of these discussions will be brought to the attention of the Board.
The results of the survey will be collated after Friday 2nd June.

This is our current policy statement:
"First year students are allocated to class groups on an unstreamed basis. At end of first year, following thorough review of ongoing assessment results, end-of-year results and consultation with teachers, students are allocated to an all honours class and a class band comprised of two further class groups(depending on enrollment).
The former group will take all subjects to higher level with the exception of common papers and the latter will be provided with the opportunity of taking subjects at different levels. On a subject-by–subject basis students will be streamed within this band, using the same procedure as applied to the all honours class group. Further requests for changing levels within this band will be considered in consultation with teachers, parents and pupils". Students are grouped on a mixed-ability basis for option subjects (art, home economics, music, design, business, materials technology).

This is the proposed change:
"First year students are allocated to class groups on an unstreamed basis. This unstreamed format will continue into Second and Third Year for Science, History, Geography, P.E, Religion, CSPE and SPHE. In the core subjects (Maths, English, Irish and French), students will be divided into higher or lower sets depending on their ability in a given subject. These “sets” will be allocated following a thorough review of ongoing assessment results, end-of-year results and consultation with teachers" Students will continue to be grouped on a mixed-ability basis for option subjects (art, home economics, music, design, business, materials technology).
