The move from primary school to secondary school can be daunting, we recognise this and understand that students and parents need to feel reassured, happy, and safe during this transition period. We have created this Transition Hub to share information with you and answer any questions you may have before you join us in September.
We hope that you find the information and activities in this Hub useful.
We can’t wait for you to start with is!
Head of Year 7 & Transition Lead
At Cliff Park Ormiston Academy, we pride ourselves on providing our new students and parents with a smooth and successful transition from primary to secondary school and I have already been in communication with Primary leads to support this process. During the forthcoming weeks I will be meeting the students in their familiar settings to talk to them about Cliff Park Ormiston Academy, the transition process and answer any questions they may have. In addition to this, I speak with each student’s primary teacher to discuss any additional needs students may have that require further transition support. Moving from one educational setting to another can be very worrying for the whole family but is also a very exciting time and we will ensure that students are ready and prepared. I would therefore like to encourage you to do the following:
Over the coming weeks, you will receive further communications regarding our Parent Information evening and the upcoming transition days, whereby students spend two days with us in preparation for September to eliminate any worries or fears they may have.
I am really looking forward to meeting you all in person, but until then please do not hesitate to get in contact with me.
Head of Year 7
