We take particular care to help new students to settle quickly into the larger community of a secondary school and there is a close liaison with primary schools. In the Summer Term, we begin the process of Primary Transfer with a series of visits to our major feeder schools to talk to class teachers about each student coming in September in order to build up a full picture of their needs and strengths in the immediate months of arrival.
We offer an extensive outreach programme to our local feeder schools. In terms 2-6 we visit local schools and our PE department run fun sports activities. For these sessions year 10 and 11 pupils that are taking part in Young Sports Leaders act as helpers/ coaches.
We also offer subject specific transition events over the summer term. Parents and pupils are invited to the school and while the children take part in fun activities in the subject area the parents are given the opportunity to find out about the subject area and ask any questions to the teachers .
In the summer term members of our year team visit the local feeder schools and talk to the year 6 students who are joining St George’s in September. The students are given information booklets and are given the opportunity to ask any questions they have about life at St George’s Church of England Foundation School.
We offer a transition day for the pupils who are coming to St George’s. On this day pupils take part in a series of activities and challenges which give them the perfect opportunity to develop friendships with others, but also to get used to the school layout.
