Transition Update

Dear Parent / Carer

The plans for the induction programme for the children joining us in September are at an advanced stage.  I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting each child personally in their primary school over the last 8 weeks and am looking forward to working with you and your child. 

The next stage of the transition programme is Induction Evening.  You will receive a letter of invitation shortly after the half term break outlining the specific arrangements for this event. This will take place on Tuesday 5th July.  Parents/carers MUST attend with their child.  If your child is unable to attend the Induction Evening please can I ask that you still attend.

If your child has a special educational need you will have also received a letter to attend an additional SEN Tea and Biscuit Evening on Thursday 16th June.  It is essential that you attend both the SEN Tea and Biscuit Evening and the Induction Evening.  It is important that we have a thorough understanding of any SEN support your child currently receives at their primary school to ensure that the necessary support is available here at Andrew Marvell College.

Transition week will take place between Monday 18th & Friday 21st July.  Please also be aware that Andrew Marvell College will close for the Summer holidays at 1.15pm on Thursday 21st July.  Further information about transition week will be communicated at the end of June.

The transition from Primary to Secondary school is an exciting time for many children, but can also be very daunting.  Therefore we look forward to meeting you at the Year 6 Induction Evening and working with you throughout the next five years.

Yours sincerely

Mrs K Taylor

Head of Transition
