Joining us in September?
We are delighted to welcome you to our virtual transition for 2020!
This is a very important stage in a child’s education as they prepare to move from primary to secondary school. We find ourselves in extraordinary times and this year transition looks very different to previous years. We have worked extremely hard in partnership with the primary schools to provide a package of support that will effectively support students moving from Year 6 to Year 7 in the autumn.
As a result of the current situation we are currently unable to hold a face to face transition event, the current guidance from the government states that "though visits to secondary schools for induction will not take place this year, some secondary schools may have capacity to undertake remote induction briefings or other types of sessions for pupils, for example to meet form tutors, heads of year, or other key staff, or have a tour of the school virtually."
Please explore our virtual transition platform using the links below which will help to support your child in preparing to start in Year 7 in the autumn. However, if the guidance changes to allow face to face transition we will do so. We have created a range of transition materials which can be used at home and in the primary schools with their current teachers. We have posted out a Transition pack to every Year 6 student, this pack contains the Moving Up Guide and a Transition Activity booklet, including a competition to design the main character for the transition guide next year.
Finally, we want to assure you that when your child does start with us in the autumn, we will make every effort to make their start at Goole Academy as smooth and stress free as can possibly make it.
