Transition between primary and secondary school can be a time of anxiety for both students and parents, this year even more so. Our usual events will probably have to take a different form this year, but we are still hoping to make the transition as smooth as possible for all involved.
We wanted to keep you up to date with some of the things that are still happening to make this transition possible…
- We are already in contact with Year 6 staff from all our feeder schools schools and are gathering information about your children that will help us to allocate them to the appropriate teaching groups.
- At the bottom of this page there is a link to the school handbook, which is full of information about how the school works, what equipment is needed, where to get uniform from etc. There is also a link to a booklet produced by Warwickshire County Council to assist with transition.
- Students will be taught in the same mixed-ability group in Year 7 for most of their subjects. Extra support is available for those that need it. The pastoral team and the inclusion team work very closely to ensure the right level of support is given.
More information will be available following National Offer day in March 2021 including information about language selection, uniform, houses and My Child access, as well as a number of videos explaining how things work at Polesworth.
We are conscious of the fact that this is a difficult time for all, and urge you to get in touch if you have any concerns (big or small), or if you have any information that you think we should know about. Please contact Mr Rosten-Smart on firstname.lastname@example.org
