Y6 Transition to Secondary School
Moving on to a new setting can be a tricky time for many pupils, so we like to prepare our children as well as possible. It helps them to understand what to expect and supports them in feeling less anxious about what lies ahead.
The pupils at Glenmead move on to a wide variety of settings and may be going to a secondary school that is different to their friends. Rest assured, we share a lot of detailed information about your child with their new school.
Transition Days that take place in early July were cancelled in summer 2020. Many of the usual open days and visits to settings were virtual. Details about open days and evenings can be sought from the secondary schools themselves. We are hoping that this summer, as the pandemic abates, that our children will make a visit to their secondary schools.
We will update families as things become clear.
Visiting the website of destination schools can give you an idea about whether a school will meet your child's needs. It is a good source of information. Not all of these schools fall under Birmingham City Council and are in a different local authority with different admission arrangements. Click on the link for some of our destination schools below.
Amongst other materials, we will be using the following resources in school. They can be used as a helpful tool to discuss the move up to secondary school at home with your child. Please take a look.
