Year 6 Transition

Year 6 - 7 Transition

Transition from primary to secondary school can be an exhilarating time for many children. The opportunity to experience new subjects, new activities and make new friends at a bigger school is often met with great excitement. At The Deanery CE Academy we understand that whilst most students feel this way, some may experience nervousness at the thought of starting at a new, larger school. The Deanery CE Academy strives to ensure all students feel supported in their transition process and that it goes as smoothly as possible.

Please see the Transition presentation below which will tell you more about our staff and our vision and values. 

The Deanery CE Academy has a team of experienced staff who are here to help you and your child. We have a designated Transition team whose job it is to ensure that, at every step of the way, your child is made to feel welcome and secure.

We will begin to get to know your child as soon as his/her place is confirmed. Our team of staff will be in contact with all Primary schools and will also be available to discuss any individuals who may be seen as needing extra support during transition.

We have had fantastic feedback from parents and students and believe this gives them a solid grounding in ensuring they are as comfortable and confident as possible as they embark on this new phase of their education. We are extremely proud of how well our new year 7s settle in to The Deanery CE Academy's community. A confident and happy student is more likely to achieve his or her full potential, which is our aim as much as yours.
