Through the Trust’s specialist Transition Team we will provide a wide range of supportive activities for our partner primary schools to help Year 6 students feel confident about their move to secondary school. During Key Stage 2, our specialist teachers will work alongside teachers in primary schools to provide many exciting projects. This means that most of the children at our partner primary schools will already know their teachers and will have experienced our school prior to beginning Year 7.
In the summer term of Year 6 our Transition Team will visit students in their primary schools, liaising with their teachers and introducing a group of Year 7 ‘buddies’ from our Trust who will support them. In the Summer Term all incoming students will be invited to attend an ‘Induction Day’ where they can enjoy lessons, are introduced to some of their teachers and make new friends.
Parents will also be invited for an ‘Induction Evening’ to meet staff, to hear about how parents can be involved with the school and to discuss any concerns about starting High School.
