Education Minister Evarist Bartolo said that requests for LSEs are filed throughout the year.

A new system was announced in August by Education Minister Evarist Bartolo in August. The system would see every Kinder 1 class with more than 12 students assigned a class LSE. An LSE will also be assigned to classes where there are three students with a statement of class support, irrespective of class size.
