Transition 2020

Unfortunately, due to the current situation, our transition process will work differently than previous years as we are unable to welcome all year groups back into Woodcroft before the end of the current academic year; although this is not our ideal scenario and it is a decision that we have not taken lightly, we are sure that you can appreciate that our first principle must be to ensure the safety of the staff and pupils in our learning community by following the Government guidance.

 

We are however, still very much committed to ensuring that your child has a positive, exciting and nurturing experience as they progress into their next year group. We want to ensure that moving to this next stage of their education; a new classroom, new teacher and a new key stage in some instances are all important milestones to look forward to.

Each teacher has created a 'meet the teacher' PowerPoint presentation, along with a video of them reading a story, which you can share with your child. Within the PowerPoint presentations, you will find information about your new class teacher, support staff, your new classroom, transition activities which we would love you to complete in preparation for September and other information which may be useful.

Parents, who meet the criteria, and wish to apply for free school meals for their child, can do so by following the link below. Your child must be in Reception or above when the meals begin.
