June 2020 update

Moving from Year 6 to Year 7 (transition)

Our partnership of Coventry schools has been working together on this year’s transition arrangements. All Primary schools have filled in forms for each individual child, to pass information to the receiving Secondary schools. Follow up contact and conversations between schools allows the Secondary schools to plan appropriately for the transition of children from year 6 to year 7 and this will lead to additional support for some children who may find transition more challenging.

All Secondary schools will prepare information and resources to be available on their websites from 1 July. This may include welcome blogs and messages from staff and children, virtual tours of the physical environment and explanations of what children can expect at Secondary school. They will also be inviting Year 6 children to produce a best piece of work to submit to the school in advance of their arrival. All Primary schools are being encouraged to offer Year 6 the same virtual transition programme, which focuses on readiness for their next step.

Primary schools will make best use of the information on the Secondary websites from 1 July through some focused sessions, virtually and physically.

Schools will work hard to give children as much support as possible as they move from years 6 to 7, using virtual schooling to ensure everyone has access to what they need, even if they cannot be in school physically. Schools will be contacting parents with relevant information and of course their website information is also readily available for everyone.
