Year 6 Transition 2020
Virtual Induction Day – June 2020
As we are unable to see our year 6 students this year we have created a virtual induction day. This comprises of video lessons, a welcome assembly and a virtual tour of the school.
At King John, the transitionary year is one in which new friendships are fostered; academic progress is supported and each individual personality is recognised and enhanced. Our spirit of community is essential to the year 7 experience being a happy and successful one. This year, the transition process has had to be modified due to the unprecedented circumstances. Nonetheless, our aim has been to provide students and parents with constant support to ensure that the process continues to be as fluid and as smooth as possible.
In the transition year we have four main aims: 1. To explore all new opportunities 2. To have a year of smiles and happiness 3. To take on new responsibilities 4. To always be learning something new. Our hope is that everyone finds their niche as quickly as possible in our exciting and vibrant school. Underpinning our philosophy is the right a child has to an education and how education should “develop every child’s personality, abilities and talents to the full.” (Children’s Charter)
The transition period into secondary school is a fun and exciting time but one where various difficulties and challenges may be encountered. Our role is to make sure that students feel supported from their Primary school into Secondary school.
Due to the current, unprecedented climate; our support has been as follows:
When we resume as a Year 7 group, all staff will be available to help the students and families feel supported as the next phase of the transition begins.
We want to remind our Year 7 that someone is always there to listen and to help.
Transition Team – these are a group of Year 8 students who head up the buddy system which supports Year 7. Our Transition Team will be there for support and guidance. Here are some words of advice from them:
