Key Infomation

Transferring to Secondary School

During the autumn term, parents of children in Year 6 at St Matthias School will receive information about transferring to a secondary school of their choice the following September.  We aim to provide parental workshops to support this process in the summer term of Year 5 or the autumn Term of Year 6.

During the summer term in Year 6, transition visits are arranged at Local Authority level with secondary schools.  This offers pupils the opportunity to meet their Year 7 teachers and familiarise themselves with their new classrooms and premises.  For children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), our class teachers/SENCO will discuss specific needs and the nature and level of support which has had the most impact.
