Year 6 Transition

We realise that this is an unsettling time for all students, but especially Year 6 students who are moving up to Secondary School.  We are thinking of you!  

 

During the 2020 move the following message was sent out to Parents;

Please be assured that we are doing lots of work to ensure that all of our new students are properly supported to make the move as positive as possible. 

We have written to all of our new families, and have also been in touch with all of the primary schools (over 30!) from which they will be joining us, to get both essential and helpful information.  Our new head of Year 7, Mr Underwood, will be talking to all of the Year 6 teachers as well, to fill in any gaps.

Our new parents’ evening and transition day are not taking place at present.  Parents and carers will understand that the arrangements for these may not take place, in accordance with government guidelines, but we will be in touch well in advance with  details of any revised plans.

If parents and carers have any specific queries about transition for their child, they can contact either Mr  Underwood, Head of Year 7 at wayne.underwood@cset.co.uk, or Mrs Bradford, Deputy Headteacher at clare.bradford@cset.co.uk
