Pledge 2

Hold the maximum P1 class size ratio at 25 and seek to reduce class sizes in line with Scottish Government recommendations

We have agreed with the Scottish Government to have one teacher for every class of 25 pupils in Primary 1.

Almost all our P1 classes have 25 pupils or fewer. Some classes have extra pupils added on exceptional grounds. Where there is no space to separate larger classes, classes are taught by teams of teachers.
