Transition Day for students moving from Year 6 into Year 7 secondary school was originally set for Thursday 9th July. This is a Hertfordshire wide ‘moving up’ day. Secondary schools fully appreciate the value of this time to acquaint new students with their new school, meet form teachers, see their form rooms etc. However, under the current circumstances it looks like these plans may need adjusting. We have asked Hertfordshire for their guidance as to when and how such a transition day/days might occur alongside our current provision for Year 10 and 12 students, vulnerable and key worker children; we await their response.
It is our firm intention to ensure that transition from junior to secondary school is as smooth and stress free as possible. There are numerous ways to achieve this if a physical transition is not possible and arrangements will be put in place once we have greater clarity. We anticipate that the situation will become clearer before the end of June and we intend to communicate directly with parents/carers of our new joiners at that point.
