This paper was drawn to my attention via Twitter. Classroom seating arrangements is a very important issue for class teachers and for teachers supporting small group work.

I have long since maintained that classroom seating arrangements should be 'fit-for-purpose' according to the subject taught, and the needs of the children at the time.

I totally agree that grouped seating arrangements are not defensible unless they are fully rationalised and better than alternative seating arrangements:
