We hope you and your families are all safe and well, and have enjoyed returning to your Primary Schools for the end of Year 6. We are looking forward to your child joining our Aldersley family, and hope that the email contact and regular updates on the website have been beneficial.
To prepare your child for their move to Aldersley High School, all Year 6 students are being invited in to school for a short session before we break up for the summer term to allow them to tour the building and prepare for their move up to Aldersley High School. These sessions will be in small groups of no more than 10 students, and students will remain in one classroom for the duration of their lessons (with the exception of their tour of the school), with a designated toilet and handwashing area away from the other sessions which will also be running. We will also be welcoming students at staggered times throughout the morning to ensure that each group of 10 students remains together, running the same again at the end of the sessions.
No refreshments will be provided for these sessions, but students are welcome to bring their own snacks and drinks to consume at their desk. Students should attend in full Primary school uniform, and where possible, walk, bike or come in a car to avoid public transport. Where this isn’t possible, please be assured that we have considered travel as part of the groupings so that the regular bus service used by our students isn’t overwhelmed. Unfortunately, our minibus service will be unable for your child’s session.
At the end of their session, students will be provided with a Summer Project to take back to their Primary Schools which schools are already aware of. They may ask students to bring them in to school, or to use them at home, but your child’s teachers at Primary will be able to offer further guidance on this.
To enable us to prepare resources for these sessions, could you please click on the link below to complete the consent form.
Please check your letter that has been sent via email for your child’s date and time of their session.
If you have any questions or queries regarding these sessions, then please email: KDunn@aatrust.co.uk
We will be in touch later on in the academic year regarding your child’s start date at Aldersley, once we have received Government guidance for Secondary Schools.
Thank you very much for your continued support.

The transition projects are an essential part of your journey before you join us so try your best to complete all projects to the best of your ability. They can be emailed prior to your start however do not panic as they can be printed once you arrive at Aldersley in your first week.
