Year 6 to Year 7 Transition

On Thursday 29th June, all our new pupils will be invited to spend a pastoral day in school to meet with their new House Progress Leader and Pastoral Behaviour Manager and to get to know other members of their House.  Pupils then spend a second day with us which will be a curriculum day. This will be on Wednesday 5th July.  On the curriculum day, the pupils will meet with even more teaching staff and will also have sample lessons throughout the day.

On both days students should come dressed in their primary school uniform. Your child will need to bring with them a packed lunch or [approximately] £2.50 for a school lunch. If your child currently receives Free School Meals, lunch will be provided. They need to arrive at Wellfield Academy for 9.30am on both days and will be dismissed at 2.30pm. Please ensure that they are aware how they are getting home either making their own way or being collected.
An Intake Parent’s Evening will be held at 6pm on Thursday 29th June, the same day as the pastoral day. On this evening there will be a presentation from the Senior Leadership Team and House Progress Leaders.  This informative evening will give you all of the details that you need to know to make the transition to high school as smooth as possible.

Our transition team have been busy visiting our feeder primary schools and meeting the students who will be joining us in September, and we have loved meeting the young people who will become part of the Wellfield Academy family. From information gathered at these visits from both students and teachers we will start to decide on tutor groups. In addition to this we use information from parents, so please do return the data collection sheets from the pack you will have received as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via the General Office on 01772 421303 or email
