Transition from primary to secondary school is an incredibly important time. Transition to Idsall is run by a team of experienced teaching and support staff, led by Mrs J Reeve.
The transition process runs throughout the whole academic year, from the school open evening in September, right through to Induction Day and the associated parental information evening that is usually held in July. As a school, we try and do as much as we can to support our year 6 pupils with their transition to secondary school, and this includes visiting them in their primary schools, arranging visits to Idsall, supporting with the arrangements to purchase uniform and holding a parental information evening. In addition to this, the Head of Year 7 also liaises closely with the local primary schools, in order to gain important academic and pastoral information with regards to each pupil – ensuring that we know as much about each pupil as we can before they join us.
Key Dates for pupils starting Idsall in September 2023 are:
- Uniform Evening: Tuesday 2nd May (4-7 pm)
- Year 6 Transition Days for pupils: Monday 3rd July and Tuesday 4th July
- Transition Information Evening for parents: Monday 3rd July (5-7 pm).
