Transition to Year 7

Year 6 is a very important time for the children and one of our aims at Kirk Smeaton C of E Primary School is to prepare them for the next stage in their school career. The move from Year 6 to Year 7 can be daunting but also very exciting and we work alongside the local secondary schools to make this transition as smooth and stress-free as possible.

The main secondary schools that we feed to are:

-Campsmount Academy

-Brayton Academy

- Snaith High School

 

Kirk Smeaton C of E School is based in North Yorkshire therefore our main feeder school is Brayton Academy.  Most of our children usually go to our local High School, Campsmount Academy, this is classed as a South Yorkshire school. 
The process starts at the beginning of Year 6 when the schools visit the children to explain the types of changes they can expect and all the opportunities that will be on offer.

The Year 6 teachers liaise closely with these schools to create a profile of assessment data and transition needs for each child. Each send a representative member of staff to meet the children and discuss with them what their new school will be like.
During the summer term all Year 6 children attend their prospective secondary schools for a Transition Day where they meet their form tutors and take part in lessons.  During Year 5 and 6, the children are also involved in different activities led by the schools, which help in the transition process e.g. drama, workshops and sports events.

We have close links with some of the private settings, Wakefield School Foundation and Ackworth School.


How do I apply?

When your child begins Year 6, you will automatically be sent a letter with information of how to apply for the school of your choice.  If you are considering private education, you will need to contact the school directly.


Children with Special Educational Needs

If your child has special educational needs we strongly urge parents to consider secondary school transition when your child is in Year 5. It is encouraged that parents visit the school earlier than normal and meet with the special needs coordinator if possible. Staff at Kirk Smeaton  C of E School will offer support to parents.
