I am delighted to learn that your child has accepted a place at Pewsey Vale School in September 2021. We understand that this is a very important time for students and that the move from Primary to Secondary can seem daunting. This is why we place great importance on the transition process and we are committed to making this a smooth and enjoyable process for all involved.
Providing we are able to, we will endeavour to visit the primary schools over the coming weeks to meet the students and their current Year 6 teachers and we have detailed the events we are holding for our transition of students in the table below:-
|May/June 2021||Information collection from primary schools and parents to support transition.|
|June/July 2021||Senior staff to visit feeder primary schools to meet students and their Year 6 teachers.|
|Monday 12th July 2021||Transition event virtual due to COVID restrictions.|
|Friday 3rd September 2021||First day for students starting in Year 7 and Year 11 students return.|
|Monday 6th September 2021||Rest of the school returns|
|Mid-October 2021||Year 7 “Settling in” evening for parents and their child to meet tutors.|
Please Note: Due to COVID restrictions, we are unable to run our transition event in person this year. The event was due to be held on the 7th July, but the event will now run virtually on Monday 12th.
Please find attached an information booklet with some key information regarding the school here: Year 7 Information Booklet 2021/2022
Please find attached a letter regarding our transition day on the 12th July 2021 here: Transition Day Update
