Moving Up Week

It’s hard to believe that we are nearly at the end of another school year! To prepare our children well for next year, we are holding a five-day Moving Up Week, starting on Monday 2nd July. We ask that all children are dropped off at their usual entrance on Monday the 2nd but request that they are collected from their new exit at home time on Monday. For the rest of the week, they will need to be dropped off and picked up at their new entrance/exit. If you are not sure where that will be, please ask your child’s current teacher this week. The children will get to spend a whole week in their new classroom, getting to know the staff in their new class and important routines. This means they will be ready to go when we come back in September! All classes will be taught by their new teacher for the full week, except Y1. They will have their new teacher, Mr. Whittaker on the Monday and will then be taught by Mr Worden for the rest of the week. New and current Nursery children will be taught for the full week by our new Nursery teacher, Miss Margison. Arrangements for the induction of new Nursery and Reception children have already been communicated to parents/carers; if you are not sure of these arrangements, please contact the school office. All children that receive additional adult support will continue to do so in Moving Up Week and in September. All staffing for this remains as it is this year, unless you have already been informed otherwise by Mrs. Brown. Most of our Y6 children will be out visiting their new high schools on Wednesday 4th- Friday 6th. Those that are not will be provided for within school. If you are a parent/carer of a Y6 child and are unsure of their transition arrangements, please contact the high schools directly. All staff are looking forward to meeting their new class- Moving Up Week was a great success last year and we know it will be just as effective this year in supporting a smooth transition for our children.
