Year 6 to 7 Transition
At the Heath Lane Academy, we pride ourselves on successful transition for our new students. In order to achieve this, we put a lot of things in place to ensure that this nervy time becomes less so, both for students and for parents, and this support continues throughout Year 7.
We have an open door policy, parents are welcome to ring up and make an appointment to view the school at any time and be shown around the Academy to see what happens on a daily basis. This is how confident we are in prospective and current parents coming to see what happens in our school. Questions, feedback and suggestions are always welcome and can be sought from the website in the first instance.
The timeline below gives a useful guide as to when a range of different visits, meetings and activities will occur across Year 6 and 7, both for students and parents/carers. This range of different events help all students, including our most vulnerable, to feel at ease with the building, the staff, other students and our processes.
