Class Groupings
We are interested to know about groupings between and within classes in this child's year. Q50-Q58 ask about groupings between classes and Q59-Q67 ask about groupings within classes.
Some schools group children in the same year by general ability and they are taught in these groups for most or all lessons. We refer to this as streaming.
Some schools group children from different classes by ability for certain subjects only and they may be taught in different ability groups for different subjects. We refer to this as setting.
Other schools do not group children by ability between classes. Sometimes this may be because there are not multiple classes in the year.

In this child's year, is there streaming?

Other schools do not group children by ability within classes. Some schools may use within-class groupings in addition to between class streaming and setting and others may use within-class groupings instead of between class streaming and setting.
Some schools may not use any general or subject specific ability groupings either within or between classes.

Some schools group children from different classes by ability for certain subjects only and they may be taught in different ability groups for different subjects. We refer to this as setting.
Other schools do not group children by ability between classes. Sometimes this may be because there are not multiple classes in the year.
