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.

Unfortunately there is an ongoing issue with bicycle thefts in North Edinburgh and beyond. Around the UK approximately half a million bikes are stolen every year.
In our school we provide a secure bike shed for use by students. It is kept locked through most of the school day. Although the incidence of theft from this facility is low, it is still upsetting for those who are victims when it happens.
If your child stores their bicycle in the school bike shed please ensure that it is well protected. The minimum security advised is the use of a D lock. Further advice is available in the article below. Stay safe.
