Transition and Induction
Every year we plan a thorough transition programme for all our children. For those moving to the Infants or on to Secondary school we work between schools to plan a more in-depth transition, tailored to the needs of the classes and individual children. Our main feeder Secondary school is Ridgeway School and Sixth Form. The transition for years 2 and 6 include lots of visits throughout the year. We believe that regular contact with the feeder school helps the children to gradually become familiar with the staff, pupils and environment.
If your child is joining us for the first time; WELCOME! We have created a link to our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Year 3 induction presentations and will meet with you and your child as part of the induction process. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are having to work a bit differently this year so our presentations have been recorded rather than holding face to face induction meetings. Home visits for children coming into Reception will be via zoom.
