Year 6 into Year 7 Transition
The transition from primary to secondary school is an important one for you and for your child; we will work hard to make sure that this is a positive experience for all, even under the current circumstances. We are confident that we can transition your child safely and will work with parents and primary schools to ensure the transition is smooth and successful for every child.
We work closely with our feeder primary schools to ensure that students are prepared and ready to move to secondary school. The process begins in October with our Open Evening; students and parents are invited to visit us to hear about why Putteridge High is the first choice for a successful future. This occasion allows everyone to meet staff and current students and to see some of the activities that go on in the school.
When families have been allocated a place we contact all our families to make an initial introduction. During the months of April, May and June, members of the pastoral and support teams make contact with the primary schools to discuss students and share information about the children coming to us in September. This ensures that any relevant information is passed on and helps us to get to know our new students and plan ahead. In July there will be a transition day where all Y6 students visit their allocated new secondary school. You will receive further information about this day shortly.

Packed lunch to be brought into school.
Students will have the opportunity to experience a day at High School, it will be a fantastic opportunity to meet staff and start building relationships with others! On arrival, children will be directed to the Main Hall for registration, where they will be welcomed and start the day with an information assembly and Headteacher welcome.
Transition Day this year will be focussed around our ethos, First CLASS, and the students will get to experience a matinee performance of our summer show, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Some of our Year 8 students will be assigned as ‘Buddies’ and support the children during their day with us.
As a cashless school we are not able to provide your child with a school lunch and would ask you to provide your child with a packed lunch, snack for morning break and refillable water bottle. Any children who are entitled to free school meals will be given a packed lunch ‘grab bag’ and we would ask you to confirm this entitlement using the GoogleForm below no later than the 3rd July 2023.
