Year 6 to 7 transition
We are delighted that you have chosen Heron Hall Academy for your secondary school and we excited for you to experience what school life is like here.
We recognise that the transition process in the final term can be a potentially anxious time for some Year 6 students and their parents. Therefore, we want to make sure that any anxiety is minimised, so your child feels eager and ready to join us in September.
Here are the transition events in June and July.
Primary Schools visits in June
During the summer term will visit all year 6 students at their primary school. These visits allow our staff to meet students in person and liaise with the relevant primary staff in order to collect information which helps us when we create our teaching and tutor groups.
Transition days at heron Hall Academy
These will be held on 7-8 July
For students with statements of special educational need or Education Health and Care plans and the SENDCO will attend Year 6 statement review meetings to begin to understand the needs of these students and plan their transition.
For students with high transition needs, the SENDCO will put in place a more personalised transition programme, in conjunction with the primary school, parents/carers and the school welfare team.
