Joining From Year 6
The transition phase from KS2 to KS3 is a highly successful and well established pattern. The school values the strong, supportive links from all primary schools who assist in this critical phase in a young person’s education.
Primary groups regularly visit school to engage in a range of activities led by staff from The County High School, Leftwich including Dance, PE, Science and Technology.
The transition Co-ordinator visits all year 6 primary groups within the cluster in the Autumn term to make initial contact and identify any pupils who could benefit from additional support at transition.
Open Evening allows all interested families an opportunity to visit and experience the wide ranging learning activities offered.
Once places have been formally allocated to potential Yr 6 – Yr 7 pupils (usually the March of Yr 6) visits are made to ALL schools where pupils attend who will be Yr 7 at The C.H.S.L.
At this meeting detailed discussions are held with primary staff regarding the pupils learning and there’s a chance for pupils to freely ask questions regarding life at Leftwich.
In July new Pupils are invited to spend two days in school experiencing/tasting the structure of the secondary curriculum.
Contact with parents and carers is essential for success at transition. To enable this to happen parents will be invited into school in the March of Yr 6 so all the details of the transition can be outlined :
- During the tester day visits where parents meet their child’s tutor
- To ensure that pupils have settled into Yr 7 a parent – tutor consultation evening supplements our consultation programme in September
At any time during the transition phase, the Primary – Secondary co-ordinator / Yr 7 learning leader can be contacted to discuss any aspect of a child’s education provision.
