Key Stage 2-3 (year 6 to year 7)

During your child’s final year at Primary School, Mrs Macdonald (Head of Year 7 & 8/SENCo) visits the school and meets all future students and talks to class teachers and the Head teacher.  This is an important part of your child's introduction to our school.  During this period our Head of Learning Support, Mrs Cornelius, and FLC Manager, Mrs Roche, also liaise with your child’s Primary/Junior School to discuss the support requirements of those students with special needs including those on the Gifted and Talented Register or need extra support with transition. 

In the summer term, Year 6 pupils will visit the School perhaps on several occasions. This important step in Primary to Secondary transition helps to ensure that we get to know our future students and their needs as fully as possible before they join us in Year 7. This means that we can begin productive work immediately in September to maximise learning and that we can also ensure that students experience a smooth and happy transition from Primary school.
