There will be a Welcome Meeting for students and parents on Wednesday 26th April at 6 p.m.
This meeting is an excellent opportunity to find out more about the Transition process and will hopefully answer lots of the initial questions that you may have.
Prior to this meeting, there will be an informal drop-in clinic in the Sixth Form Common Room between 5.00p.m. – 6.00p.m. for any parents who have specific queries about Transition or who need assistance with any aspect of the Transition process.
We will be visiting Primary Schools between May and June to meet your child’s Year 6 teacher and share key information in order to ensure that the move up to Secondary school is as positive as possible.
If there is any specific information that you feel we need to be aware of, please include it when you return your data forms.
Your child will also be invited to attend a Transition Day on either Thursday 6th or Friday 7th July 2017. This will allow them to experience a typical day at Parrs Wood and
will be arranged in conjunction with your child’s primary school; you will be notified of your confirmed date in the summer term. Please note, we are able to offer further Transition visits for students who have additional needs or are anxious about moving schools; if this is something that you feel your child would benefit from,
please let us know.
Finally, we will hold a Transition Evening on Tuesday 11th July 6 - 8pm, beginning with a talk in the hall at 6pm. This will allow you to find out more about our ethos
and will also provide the opportunity to meet your child’s Form Tutor and
the other students who will be in their Tutor Group.
