Secondary Transfer

The East 1 Schools’ Transition Programme has focussed on ensuring that parents make an informed decision about the secondary schools they apply to.  The transition programme has also focussed on starting the transition process in the summer term of year 5, so that parents have enough time to gather the secondary school information that they need.  Through the programme, pupils from year 5 and above, have had the opportunity to attend events held at Swanlea School so they can become familiar with a secondary school setting. The programme has also offered primary and secondary colleagues the chance to share best practise which has impacted on both the primary and secondary curriculum.
