Composite Class Survey

Image result for survey

City of Edinburgh Council are consulting with parents, carers, school staff and pupils around our current guidance for selecting pupils for a composite class.


Composite classes are a normal part of primary school education in Scotland and have become more common.  The maximum class size for a composite class is 25 pupils.  This applies to all composite classes in Scotland, regardless of the age and number of year groups within the class.


In Edinburgh, when planning composite classes, year groups are not normally be split 3 ways, for example, a P2 year group would not be split into P1/2, P2 and P2/3. A split of P1/2 and P2/3 would be acceptable.  


Headteachers are responsible for organising a composite class.  Currently in Edinburgh, the main criterion for selecting pupils for a composite class is age – so the oldest pupils from the younger year group will be grouped with the younger children from the older year group.  In other words, we use date of birth as our main criterion. Head Teachers may also consider the gender balance of the classes and pupils in each stage.


We invite you to participate in our survey – this can be accessed by clicking on the link below or copying and pasting it into your web browser.




The survey will be open until Sunday 26th January 2020.   

Thank you.

Nativity Performances

Image result for nativityOver the past week we have had several lovely Nativity performances in and around school.

Last Thursday, our P4-P7 classes held their Nativity show at Broughton St.Mary’s Church. Then, on Friday, P1-3 held their Nativity, also at Broughton St.Mary’s. Finally, today our Nursery held their Nativity performance in our school Hall.

All 3 performances were lovely, with fantastic singing, reading and performing. Well done everyone!

We’d like to thank Peter, Lindsay and all the support team at Broughton St. Mary’s Church, for allowing us the use of the beautiful Church for our performances, and also for all the help and work they put into making our shows run so smoothly. Well done to all our staff for practising and preparing our children so well for their performances!

Thanks also to all the parents, carers, family and friends who attended, as every show needs an audience!

Here are some pictures of last week’s P4-7 performance, courtesy of Ivon Bartholomew. Thanks Ivon!
