    At my school, we carefully consider the make up of classes each year and try and accommodate this by consulting with teachers to discuss which children should be separated etc.
    Agreed. My son was in a class with 3 other boys in kinder and they were a bad combination. He was in trouble constantly. He's been separated from them this year (4 Year 1 classes so one boy in each) and what a difference it's made!!! He's like a new kid. Doesn't associate with those boys any more and is rarely in trouble now.

    Another thing to consider OP!
