*Message from Miss Matthews (Transition Coordinator) – 18th June 2020*
This message was circulated to all incoming Y7 parents by email on 18th June, along with the Transition Booklet in Word format.
Dear Parents and Carers,
This message is an update about the Clyst Vale Year 6-7 transition process. Unfortunately, due to government guidelines, we cannot hold any form of induction days this year. However, we are going to make transition ‘virtual’ this year. We will be sending out some further information in the post to you, but have also made videos, work packs and virtual tours to share with you.
The first thing we have is a video for you to watch. This was made with help from my fantastic Year 7 Ambassadors who shared their experiences and advice for starting secondary school. Click on the link below to access this:
I have also included a copy of the transition booklet below. This is for your child to complete and bring with them on the first day of school to give to their tutor. It contains activities that will help them to prepare for secondary school and allow their tutors to get to know them better. You can print the booklet if you can or children can type their answers on the word document (to email to tutors later on) or write on a separate piece of paper.
In the next couple of weeks I will contact you again with information about tutor groups. I also have a couple more forms to send to you, along with our essential guide to Clyst Vale.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Miss Izzy Matthews
Key Stage 2-3 Transition Coordinator
