Year 6

Dear Parent/Carer,

Due to us following the current Government guidelines, unfortunately our school is closed and we do not have any further information of when we can reopen. With this in mind our transition week will not take be taking place as planned on Monday 29th June 2020.

We are aware of the importance of the transition from primary to secondary and I wanted to ensure you that we will do everything possible to ensure that your child’s transition runs as smoothly as possible. I appreciate that it may be an anxious time for you and your child at the moment, so we wanted to reassure you that we are here to support you during this period.

To support your child moving from primary to secondary we would like them to complete several transition projects from a wide range of different subject areas. Each of the projects will show you key members of staff within the department and give your child the opportunity to get prepared for secondary school. All completed transition projects will need to be handed in on your child’s first day in September or can be emailed directly to myself. During the first week of starting Alderlsey we will be giving away some fantastic starter pack prizes for those students who have produced the best transition projects. Therefore, please encourage your child to engage in all activities set and return them when they can. The transition projects will be updated each week so please ensure you visit our transition page on a weekly basis.

Finally, can I take this opportunity to thank you for your support during this difficult time and we hope you enjoy the start of your child’s virtual transition. 

Please continue to visit our school website or follow us on Twitter at @AldersleyHighSc for more information about our school and regular updates and links to support you and your child further.

In the meantime if you would like to contact me on the following email kdunn@aatrust.co.uk, please don’t hesitate to do so.

Yours Sincerely,

Miss K Dunn

Assistant Headteacher
