Year 6 to 7 Transition
We believe that a smooth, positive and exciting transition from Year 6 to Year 7 is crucial to the start of the students' time at King's Academy Ringmer.
During the summer term we aim to visit every young person at their primary school to introduce ourselves and start to get to know them individually. We also liaise with their primary school teachers and collect information which aids us when allocating mentor and teaching groups.
In June we invite all Year 6 students and their Parents/Carers to meet their Mentor who will support them up until the end of Year 11. Parents/Carers will also have the opportunity to speak with key members of staff, buy or order uniform and find out about and apply for a bus pass and locker. Parents/Carers can also find out more information about and join the PTA.
In July we invite all Year 6 students to attend an Induction morning where they will again meet their Mentor and be introduced to their Mentor Group. During the morning the students will be able to experience life at secondary school, taking part in activities in a number of subjects and enjoying a meal in the Dining Room.
We can also arrange additional visits for vulnerable students which is arranged through the Support for Learning Department. If you would like to discuss this further please contact Mrs Vicki Massingham on 01273 812220 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
