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 1st July. We ask that all children are dropped off at their usual entrance on Monday 1st 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 the new Y2. Mrs. Walne will not be in school during that week; the new Y2 will be taught by Mr. Worden. Mrs. Walne will spend some time teaching her new class the following week. 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. Children staying in Nursery in September will attend Nursery as normal during moving up week. All children that receive additional adult support will continue to do so in Moving Up Week and in September. Most of our Y6 children will be out visiting their new high schools on Wednesday 3rd- Friday 5th. 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- this will be the third year we have held a Moving Up Week and as it has been a great success previously, we know that it will be just as effective this year in supporting a smooth transition for our children.
