Whilst we find ourselves in very different circumstances, one thing has not changed. That is the importance of young people transitioning through to the next stage of their education. The excitement, the anxieties, the challenges, the thrills, all still exist, and I am absolutely determined to meet any challenges head on and give your child the best possible transition experience that I can at this time.
I am aware that some students have returned to their primary school and I am working closely with primary schools to plan alternative transition processes that will initially take place virtually. I am also aware that not all Year 6 students have returned to school and I will make sure that all transition activities can be completed at home. I am confident that students will find our virtual transition programme helpful, and it will support them to have a smooth start at Watling Academy.
