Secondary Schools and Transition

At Kings Heath Primary, we understand that transitioning from primary to secondary school can be a significant step for our pupils and families. To ensure a smooth and successful transition, we have implemented a clear and structured process that supports our pupils every step of the way.

One of the key elements of our transition program is effective communication. We understand the importance of keeping both pupils and parents informed about the transition process. We hold regular meetings and provide detailed information to ensure everyone is well-informed and able to ask any questions they may have. This open line of communication helps to alleviate any concerns or anxieties and ensures a positive start for our pupils in their new school.

In addition, we also believe that spending time in the secondary school environment prior to the official transition is crucial.  These visits provide our pupils with the opportunity to become familiar with the layout, facilities, and staff at their future school. Having these interactions helps to ease any apprehensions and allows our pupils to feel more confident as they embark on this new chapter of their educational journey.

Furthermore, we go the extra mile by inviting the headteacher of the secondary school to visit Kings Heath Primary. This visit allows the headteacher to meet our pupils in their familiar environment and establish a personal connection. This personal touch is invaluable in building trust and fostering a sense of belonging within our pupils as they prepare to embark on their secondary school experience.

We take great pride in our clear and structured transition program. By focusing on effective communication, providing opportunities for pupils to spend time in the secondary school environment, and arranging visits from secondary school staff, including the headteacher, we ensure that our students feel supported and prepared for their transition to secondary school.
