Welcome to all our Year 6 students and their parents/ carers who will be joining the Sacred Heart family in September 2021.

Transition from Primary School to Secondary School is such an important milestone for your son or daughter. We pride ourselves at Sacred Heart on our robust transition offer. 

Although we are currently in unprecedented times, we are hoping we can still prepare your son/ daughter with our transition plans this year.

We normally start our Transition programme straight after the SATS week. It usually begins with a morning or afternoon visit to Sacred Heart to explore what it is like being a student with us and to help them feel less worried about the full transition week in July. The Year 6 students are always very excited and eager to start finding out about life at Sacred Heart. Although this year has been very different and difficult for the current Year 6 students, we want them to be equally as excited as previous years in starting their journey at Sacred Heart.  We have been thinking of how we can still prepare our Year 6 students and welcome them into our family whilst adhering to Government guidelines. We have made some adjustments but feel the Year 6 will be as prepared as possible under the circumstances.

Key People:

Mrs M  Hill – Assistant Headteacher and Transition Lead

Miss S Mavin – Emotional health Practitioner and Transition Team

If your son/ daughter is feeling a little wobbly about Secondary School or may benefit from some additional transition to alleviate their worries or fears, your child’s Year 6 teacher will let Mrs Hill know. Mrs Hill will then organise for Sam Mavin to contact you to arrange some extra sessions (possibly remotely depending on COVID-19 and Government guidance) before the transition week in July.

 

Key dates: These will be released very soon. 

Please note that we will aim to stick to these dates but they may change depending on Government guidelines. If things do have to change, we will adapt and inform you, ensuring that all our Year 6 students feel prepared to start Sacred Heart in September.

SEND information

Mrs White our SENDCO will be in touch with all the Year 6 teachers to discuss any children on the SEND Register to ensure we know how to best support our Year 6 with any additional needs. Once she has met with them, she may then be in contact with you regarding your son/ daughter’s SEND Profile. This is a document that is sent to all teachers of your son/ daughter to help them know how best to support your child. Any questions relating to SEND during transition can be sent via email to transit[email protected]

 

Transport

We will be in touch soon with parents and carers of those students who live in areas where the School bus picks up and drops off.
