Transition

Starting school and moving to a new school is an important milestone for a child. The transition often marks a time of great excitement for families and children. We also recognise that transition occurs between year groups and Key Stages.

We want all of our children to feel happy, safe and secure. The quicker they settle into their new environment, the more confident they become in developing independence and enjoyment of their learning.

Although we are working within unprecedented times, transition is still an important factor in a child’s school life. We have been working at school, Trust and Local Authority level to ensure transition for pupils still takes place. We will be posting information regarding transition for pupils below, please keep checking for updates.

Transition for children attending Nursery in September 2020

We are awaiting government guidance in regards to how transition for new starters will look in September. However, it is still important to prepare children for transition and if you have accepted a place, you should shortly receive your transition pack which includes a range of activities for you to complete with your child at home, advice and helpful hints, as well as several forms which will need to be completed and returned to school. We would love to see any activities completed when your child starts school.

Additionally, we have scheduled online meetings for you and your child to access in order for you to meet your child’s class teacher and ask any questions you may have. If you would like to book a meeting with your child’s class teacher, please contact the school office.

Transition for Y6 Pupils 

Doncaster LA Transition  have scheduled transition for our Y6 pupils which will take place from 1st-3rd July.  All Y6 pupils should have received a Flying High Transition Booklet through the post, along with a code to access your child’s Secondary School Google Classroom. If your child is currently in school, we require them to bring their workbook and letter to school in order for them to complete this within their classroom setting. If your child is at home, we are asking them to complete the work book at home and let us know how they’re getting on through class dojo/the parent app. If you need any support with accessing transition work for your Y6 child please do not hesitate to contact us via the school office, class dojo or parent app.
