Children will be placed in the class that is appropriate to their age group. See below table.

This policy will be reasonably flexible and students will be placed in the most suitable class taking into account age appropriateness, language acquisition, academic ability and other factors. We will conduct a short assessment test so we are able to judge the most suitable class for the child.
