Settling into a new school quickly and happily is an important building block for future success. This can be an anxious time so we plan carefully for your child’s arrival here. A soft federation has been formed with Brunts and our family primary schools and we work together to provide a series of events and curricular links aimed at making the transition to secondary school a smooth one.
We understand how daunting it can be for children and parents when they move up into secondary school. Thoughts about making new friends and not knowing many people can be a real worry for a lot of children. Representatives from all the schools in the family meet regularly to plan events and evaluate what has gone before. Where it is felt that particular children may need additional help at the time of transition this information is shared and relevant staff at both schools liaise closely to ensure that the necessary support is provided. Members of staff in different curriculum areas meet with their colleagues in the other schools to ensure that the primaries are all preparing their children for their lessons at Brunts. And to ensure that the teachers at Brunts know what to expect of their new Year 7 students.
