Transition- Moving On
Transition for children from Primary school to Secondary school can be very exciting and quite worrying. The most common fears are getting lost, being bullied and is the work going to be too hard. Despite these fears most children find the transition a positive experience.
In our school we do all we can to ensure that your child feels happy and confident when they enter Beacon Hill.
The Pastoral Team works closely with all local primary schools, children in year 6 are met in the autumn term and again at the start of the summer term. We will visit them in their own environment to answer questions and explain how secondary school life works. YR5 pupils also have the opportunity to attend various transition activities at Beacon Hill.
All year 6 students will attend a transition day at Beacon Hill in July to experience the routines of secondary school and meet staff, this helps to prepare them for their start in September.
The Pastoral team will offer more intense transition work for some children.
The transition support continues until the children have successfully settled into Beacon Hill.
