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 transition@stannesacademy.org.uk 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
