Year 6 to Year 7 Transition
Year 6 teachers and the SEN team at Twydall have been working very closely with secondary schools, in order to ensure your child's transition from Year 6 to Year 7 is as smooth as possible. We have held meetings with each secondary school, where we have discussed your child in detail. Where available, we have also obtained information about the induction activities and/or process that will be provided for your child.
Most secondary schools have provided a date for a parent call/zoom chat and/or provided video introductions for you to watch - they have also posted information on their websites. If you have not heard from your child's school regarding the induction process by the end of June, we recommend you get in touch with their admissions team.
In the meantime, please see below for information we have gathered to date and links to the websites of the school your child is due to attend. Please keep a close eye on this page as we will update as and when we are given further information:
