Year 6 Transition

A successful transition for students involves:

  • Developing new friendships and improving self-esteem and confidence.
  • Settling into school life causing no concerns for parents.
  • Showing an increasing interest in school and school work.
  • Getting used to new routines and school organisation with great ease.
  • Experiencing curriculum continuity.

At St Anne’s Academy we want to ensure that children and their parents feel comfortable with the process of transfer. We do this by:

  • Having information and an induction booklet about the Academy.
  • Having an open day.
  • Providing a virtual tour of the Academy.
  • Talks by the secondary teachers, and meetings with other children and staff.
  • Visits to the Academy for whole classes at primary school or for families, where they can see examples of work, and sample lessons.
  • Organising visits by Year 7 teachers to feeder primary schools to help familiarise children with the teachers.
  • Having a structured first day of Year 7 so that children are the only students in the Academy and can experience the space and facilities.
  • Supporting curriculum continuity, using ‘bridging materials’ where the same work books are used in both Years 6 and 7.
  • Sharing information on skills and understanding students have achieved.

If you have any questions please email or you can contact the Transition Helpline where you can speak to one of the Year 7 and Welfare Team between 1 and 3pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday on 0161 643 2643
