Year 1 in an FSU


Recommended Posts

Me again, banging on about the same issue!


I think I have read stuff that says you can have year 1's in an FSU. Anyone do this?

We are a school looking at taking over the ownership of our on site Pre-school.

The two facilities are currently in adjoining rooms with a sliding door so can become one unit or stay separate as needed.

We are a very small school so i will be the only teacher in the unit but we will have 4 two year olds, 8 pre-schoolers, 12 Reception and about 5 Year 1's.

Apart from it being a planning nightmare, does anyone currently do this or have any words of wisdom.


I guess the climate is not right to stop taking two year olds at this point is it, with all the funding that is around?

This is not exactly relevant, it being an age ago in a far off country, but my first school had 28 children from Prep to Yr6 and 1 teacher. Seemed to work. The primary school I mainly went to had 3 teachers and a teachers' aid divided into three classes - Prep, Yrs 1, 2 and 3; Yrs 4, 5 and 6; and the head teacher taught Yr 7. I never felt disadvantaged, we all just cracked on with the work we were given.


I know schools don't work like this now though - last time I was home I was talking to a child in a school with 4 pupils and 23 adults providing services for them at different times.


Apologies for that walk down memory lane.
