Secondary School Transition
Dear Parents and Carers,
Transition from Primary to Secondary School is a time of mixed emotions for everyone, and this year is unquestionably more challenging than ever before. Each year we work tirelessly to ensure that transition is as smooth as it can be, and in that respect I would like to reassure you that this year is no different. Teachers are already in contact with teachers at the new schools and we have set up this page on our website to help you support your child. There is information from the Secondary Schools which you may have already been sent direct, and some other pieces that you may find helpful to work on with your child at home. This will be added to as we receive more information from the various schools.
It is unlikely that Secondary Schools will be able to offer face to face transition before the end of the academic year, however, I can assure you that they are working hard with Primary Schools to ensure that the transition at the start of the next academic year will be supportive for all pupils, and as soon as we know what that looks like we will let you know.
If you do have any questions or would like any guidance or support please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my very best to help.

Harvey Grammar School
The Harvey Grammar school have requested that pupils joining in September complete a project about themselves, what they have been doing during the Lockdown and what they are looking forward to in the next academic year.
The Harvey Grammar School have also indicated that they will not be able to offer transition days before the end of the academic year.
We have recently received further information for parents and pupils with regards to Transition arrangements. There are three links that can be used to aid with the transition for the pupils who are joining The Harvey Grammar in September.
