Year 6 Transition

September 2021 Admissions

Dear Parents and Carers

If your child has been offered a place at Bishopshalt School for September 2021, you will have had a letter from us by now. Please ensure that you email your proof of address to lcookson@bishopshalt.school as soon as possible if you have not already done so.

If, due to a change in circumstances at any time between now and September 2021 you decide not to take up the place we have offered, we would be grateful if you would inform the school without delay. Advising us at the earliest opportunity will make it possible for us to allocate the place to the next child on the waiting list.

I will write to you in June to give you further details of our Transition Day, which will be taking place on Tuesday 6th July, 2021. We very much hope that both you and your child are able to attend and look forward to meeting you then. Students with EHCPs and those who are the only ones joining us from their primary school will be invited in to meet us before the Transition Day. Details of this additional visit will be shared with you shortly.

From early June we will be sending out transition packs, in which you will find two booklets. The orange booklet contains a series of very important data collection forms, school policies and consent forms and it must be completed in full and returned to Bishopshalt School by Tuesday 6th July at the very latest. The white booklet is for you to keep and contains useful information regarding your child’s transition to secondary school.

We are currently making arrangements to meet with your child’s primary school teacher so that we can find out all about them and ensure that their transition to secondary school is as smooth as possible.

We very much look forward to meeting you in July, but if you have any questions or concerns regarding the transition process in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards

Mrs Denial

Assistant Headteacher
