Transition to Year 7

At The Crossley Heath School we have a thorough transition programme with a number of key events events taking place prior to students joining us and also throughout their first year in order to help them feel settled and happy in their new school. We understand that moving to secondary school is a big change and challenge for them.

At this point in the term, we would ordinarily be well under way with primary school visits and enjoying meeting with our new students.  It is frustrating for us that this is not currently possible.  At this stage, we are also unsure whether our planned Transition Day and Transition Information Evening will be able to go ahead.  We will be following the government guidance closely in making these decisions and will inform you as soon as we can.

Should the holding of these two key transition events not be possible then we will adapt our arrangements accordingly.  Whatever the circumstances, our aim is still to give students, parents and carers the information and experiences that allow for a confident move from primary to secondary school.

Please take the time to read our guidance booklet – Preparing Your Child for Secondary School. In addition feel free to browse our website and familiarise yourselves with our school policies including our well-being guidance.

Please take the time to visit our house shop, where once your child has been allocated a house, you will be able to buy house branded merchandise such as school bags, hoodies etc.

If you have any questions or wish to provide us with any information about your child please feel free to contact our Year 7 Progress Leader Mr Davis on
