The importance of a smooth transition between primary school and high school cannot be underestimated and in these unprecedented times we feel an even greater duty to our new intake to ensure that they feel comfortable, confident and safe about beginning life at Cardinal Heenan in September.
Please be assured that key staff have been working on a dedicated and bespoke transition package that will continue to take into account all government and local authority guidance, as well as the advice of our primary schools. We will find the right balance between keeping children safe and getting them prepared for high school in the best possible way.
We will soon have a dedicated page on our school website for our year 6 pupils and parents. On there will be: answers to FAQ; a virtual tour of the school; a questionnaire for all our new intake to complete and other activities that will help them to engage with our school community in different ways, prior to them starting here themselves. We will also have all our revised dates for any transition events that will be happening and for the start of the next academic year.
Please keep an eye on our website for further information but in the meantime if you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope that all our families remain safe and healthy at this time and we look forward to meeting you in person at the earliest and safest opportunity.
