Our expert says:
Obviously the school ought to have discusssed with you both their belief ( not scientific with kids of this age, and probably based only on their assumptions ) that he should have been in a different class. And they should, if a move was necessary and for the child's best benefit, have helped you to prepare the child for the change.
They have certainly failed in their duty to keep parents informed and to consult you on such decisions.
Mind you, for any kid, let alone someone so very young, the start of a new school year with new classmates takes a bit of settling in and getting used to.
He should be able to settle in, given a bit more time, but its wise to be observant and see whether this happens. Atg any age, but again especially when so young, its hard for a kid to speak about how they feel, and this is one of the relatively few situations where a play therapist can help in assessment which can include non-verbal aspects of play.
