28 June 2012

Dear Parents

Towards the end of the summer term, many children’s, parents’ and teachers’ minds turn to the next academic year. What will my next class be like? Will I get on with my teacher? How hard will the work be? It’s an even bigger step when moving on to a new school.

Over the past two weeks, and onto next week, many of our children have or will be making visits. These include our new entrants for Year R at Pewley Down and Year 3 at Holy Trinity. Then we have our Year 6 finding out all about their new schools.

It really must all seem so big and confusing for all of them. In all cases the security of the known is replaced by the unknown which is also bigger and populated by much bigger children who all seem to know exactly what to do.

We do all we can to make these transitions as easy as possible. We so enjoy the four-year olds arriving at school for the first time in the morning. Some full of confidence, others more wary. Very soon, however, they have all settled in very happily and start to look part of the place.

For the Year 2’s, there are two distinct groups; those moving up from Pewley Down who feel relaxed at just moving site, whilst staying at the same school with many faces they know. The other group are from a variety of infant schools who need to be looked after carefully for their first experience of the junior school.

Then we also launch our Year 6 children into the big world of secondary education. We have already spoken at length about every single child to the Heads of Year in those schools.

All of this effort is so worthwhile. It all comes down to our value of embracing the future with hope and confidence. We seek to make all our students happy and confident at the infants and the juniors, and ready for the next big step for them.

With best wishes
