Moving up to secondary school is a very important step in a young person’s life. Here at Causeway we understand how critical it is to make the transition from primary school as smooth as possible.
Year 6 starts with choosing a school with your child. Our Open Evening gives you the opportunity to tour the school and talk to current students and staff about the Causeway experience and hear the Headteacher speak. We hold Open Mornings each day at 9.15 am or 10.15 am from Monday 24th September 2018 to Friday 12th October 2018 so you can tour the school and see first-hand the school at work, speak to the Headteacher and ask questions to some of our year 7 students about their experiences. Please do phone the office to book one of these tours.
Overview of Causeway School Transition programme:
As soon as your choice of school is confirmed by the local authority we will contact you and send out a letter outlining our Transition Programme. We will also contact your child’s primary school to arrange a visit, so we can meet your child and speak to their teacher about how we can support your child best in their education and transition. Our SENCo will contact schools separately regarding any special educational needs your child may have and will make contact with you to plan support. We identify any children who may need extra transition support, in the form of visits to the school in a small group to meet key staff and get used to the school environment.
When the big day comes in September, our new Year 7 students will be fully supported with getting to grips with reading a timetable, moving around the site and making friends.
If you have any questions or concerns about the transition process and you would like to discuss in more detail, please contact Mrs V Jenkins, Assistant headteacher at the school for further information at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01323 465700.
