Transition

We work closely with the local cluster of schools and good transition arrangements between schools is vital to ensure all children joining or leaving us are happy and ready for the next chapter in their school life.

All Year 2 children who will be joining us have several chances to get to know us before term starts in September. Their visits include spending time with their Year 6 buddy who will be looking out for them as they start school with us.

We hold an Open Evening for Year 2 parents in November and a more formal meeting in June to enable parents to familiarise themselves with the school and our procedures.

We also make early contact with the high schools to ensure that the children moving on are ready for the big step they will be making and where it is needed, provide extra sessions for children who would like or need more support in the transition process.
