Primary Transition arrangements for 2020

Primary Transition arrangements for 2020

Our current plan for transition this year

Each of the following sections are key elements to the transition process. We are having to do them differently this year due to the unprecedented times we are experiencing. However, we will plan to make sure your start here in September includes some fun and exciting activities.

 

School visits and student booklet

We normally visit every student in their primary school so they can meet Miss Petts (Head of Year 7) and provide key information, then arrange transition visits where Year 6 pupils come to George Pindar School for two days to meet their new tutors, get to know the school buildings and experience typical Year 7 lessons. If schools reopen before the summer break, we will still try to visit each primary school so we can get to know your children and distribute their booklets. However, in case we can’t, you will receive a paper copy of the student booklet in the post. At this point in time, transition visits are unlikely to take place due to social distancing measures; however the video below should also help answer any questions you have and allow you to have a virtual tour of the site here at George Pindar School.

Form groups and setting

During your first week here at George Pindar School we expect that most activities will be completed within form groups to ensure strong relationships are created. We will also work with Year 6 teachers to identify who may need extra support and Ms Tunnard will ensure the relevant support is in place for when pupils start with us in September. We also appreciate that parents may be concerned due to the lack of Year 6 data this year. Again, we will work with Year 6 teachers and complete our own in-school assessments in September (as usual) to ensure we have an accurate indication of your child’s ability.

 

Friendships

In order to ensure a reassuring transition process, we give each child the opportunity to choose who they would like to be in a form group with. During conversations with primaries this information will be collated and we will do our utmost to make sure this happens.

 

School uniform

All our students are required to wear school uniform. It is important that the standard of uniform reflects a pride and sense of belonging in the school and presents our students in the best possible light to visitors and the wider community. Take a look at our video below to see how great it looks! You can also find out more on our Uniform page.
