A Message for students & parents joining us in Year 7 - Sept 2017
A warm welcome to you if you have recently heard that you or your child will be joining us at Holy Trinity in September. We are really looking forward to getting to know you over the coming months and years.
What happens next?
In a few weeks time, you will receive a large welcome booklet with useful information about the School. We encourage parents and children to read this together, so that parents can reassure their children at this exciting but possibly nervous time. We often find that parents will want to make sure we have all the information we need about their child. Much of this will be captured via the forms we ask you to fill in at this time. There will also be the chance to hear more and to meet key staff over the coming months, so you don’t need to worry.
Much work will be going on behind the scenes, with your Primary school working with us to ensure we receive all the information needed to make the transition as smooth as possible. In addition, our Special Educational Needs and Disability colleagues will be working with their colleagues in the Primary school to plan for the extra support that will be needed for some of the children joining us. If you are the parent of a SEND child, please be reassured that we have a long and well-established plan for ensuring that your child’s needs are planned for before they arrive in September. For some, this may include extra visits to the school in the summer term.
Do parents and students get to visit the school?
Yes! Parents will be invited to a talk on the evening of Wednesday 21st June at 6.30pm in the Main Hall and Year 6s will come in for the whole day on Wednesday 5th July. The booklet will contain more details. However, before that, we would like to visit you! We aim to visit all new students at their Primary schools in the first two or three weeks in June.
Going to Secondary school is a big moment. Do we need to do anything?
There will be things to do, such as getting a new uniform but, again, details will be in your welcome booklet, and there is no rush. We advise students to work hard and enjoy your last few months at Primary school and encourage parents to keep everything nice and calm!
