Dear Parents/Carers


Please take time to read below and to complete the survey from City of Edinburgh Council.  This is being carried out across all primary schools in Edinburgh and is not an indication that we will, or will not, have composite class(es) at Trinity in the future.

Many thanks

Jacqueline Scott


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 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.

Dear Parents and Carers

We would just like to update you on the Donation Station.  In the past week we have raised £305.83 which means we can already buy 14 meals and overnight stays for 14 homeless people.  We also have collected 93 pieces of Christmas chocolate.  Thank you very much for all the donations so far.  Our reverse advent calendar Donation Station will be open until the end of term.   We have set ourselves a target of 25 beds and 200 pieces of chocolate.  Please help us reach our target.
