We are always very excited at the prospect of a new group of Year 7 students joining us in September and we very much hope that we can ensure that the transition from Year 6 into Year 7 is smooth and constructive.
The transition process:
- During the summer term Mrs Reed-Birks, our Head of Year 7 and Transition, will be making arrangements for visits to every primary school that have students coming to the Academy.
- Senior Leaders from the Academy will come in to meet the students who will have an opportunity to ask questions following a short presentation.
- Students will be invited to attend two ’Transition Days' in July; both days likely to start at 9.00 and finish at 2.45. Students will enjoy a range of fun activities that will help them to get used to their new environment.
- Some students may be particularly anxious about moving to secondary school, staff from our special educational needs and personalised learning teams will work closely with these students to ensure that they are given appropriate support. In our experience, staff from the primary schools give us helpful information about any particular needs.
If you have any concerns about your child’s transition to the Academy please do not hesitate to contact us.
