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 focusses 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 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 practice which has a positive impact on both the primary and secondary curriculum. Swanlea Secondary School is the lead for this strand of the E1 Schools Partnership.
