We work with other local schools, childcare providers and agencies to ensure that any transitions between schools and providers are well supported.  

We ensure that opportunities for visits to new classrooms and meeting new class teachers take place towards the end of the Summer Term.

For pupils with SEND, we start this process earlier and provide additional support through the use of visuals and/or social stories.

Transition to Secondary School

Moving from primary school to secondary school is an exciting time of life, but for many children it can also be a daunting prospect. At The Parks Academy, we do everything we can to support children through this tricky time.

Local secondary schools introduce themselves to children and days are arranged where our pupils can experience life as a ‘Year 7’. They have the opportunity to meet some of their teachers, other members of staff and can take part in some lessons.

There will be updates posted throughout the year on the website, via text and also through our Twitter page.

The Y6 Team will be happy to answer any questions that you have regarding transition into Y7.
