We hope we find you well. Here is some information for the Y6 children who will be starting Kirkby College in September.
Hopefully, you will have received a letter from Kirkby College. Within that, they want you to send back the information requested so that they can start planning for next year and putting the children into tutor and house groups. Please can you send back ASAP if you haven't managed to do that yet. Many thanks.
Below, we have copied and pasted the information from the latest email. Please contact Lianne Taylor at Kirkby College for any queries you may have. Her details are below. Also, there is some work Kirkby College would like the children to attempt and to access this please click on the attachment.
“We are aware that transition to secondary school can be a worrying time for Year 6 students and never more so than now when times are uncertain. However, at Kirkby College we are committed to ensuring that the transition process goes as smoothly as possible for your child whatever the circumstances. We are, therefore, sending you the first of our transition activities for your child to complete.
We will be following this up in the near future with a further transition booklet.
The school has well developed plans for its transition days either to take place in the summer term as usual or in September, dependent upon when the government allows schools to reopen. This includes meetings for parents as well as time in school for students. We are also updating our Parent Handbook and will ensure you receive a copy of this during the summer term; hopefully at our face to face session but if not as a printed copy. This contains all of the key information you might need to help make the transition to Kirkby College a success for your child.
Please be assured that we are still working closely with all of the your child’s primary teachers to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible.
We look forward to you joining the Kirkby College community and welcoming you to our school. Mr Crookes, Assistant Headteacher”
We will be following this up with a transition handbook for students in a few weeks, but if anyone has any queries in the meantime, please ask parents to contact us.
