Key Stage 2 Transition

We know that the transition from KS2 into Secondary School can be a daunting prospect, both for pupils and parents. Please be reassured that every year, hundreds of children successfully take the big step to Year 7 and our experience at Kings’ shows us that early anxieties quickly disappear.  

Transition is a part of life we each deal with in our own way and at Kings’ we understand that communication is vital to make this easier for both parents and pupils. It is important parents can be involved in the transition process alongside their children, so we aim to make this a positive experience for everyone.

Our aims and outcomes for our transition programme are to: 

  • Prepare you for change 
  • Help build confidence 
  • Compliment pupil’s learning, social, and intellectual development 
  • Provide new working experiences and environments 
  • Work together as a team 

Kings’ is a friendly and welcoming place. We have a large team of staff and pupils working to support our newest families from before the first day, throughout your school journey. Running alongside visits by our Headteacher, Dr Adams, and the Head of Year 7 our transition programme gives parents the opportunity to meet some of the key staff within the Pastoral Team who will be supporting the children throughout their transition from primary to secondary school.  There will also be a range of activities offered to the children during the summer holidays. 

In Person Support

There are several ways we offer support to the families of pupils before you transition from Year 6.

  • School tours
  • Year 6 induction days
  • Year 6 Summer School
  • Parent coffee morning, afternoon tea, and information evenings.
