New Students

Message to parents, carers and students – June 2020

We want to reassure all our new students and families that are joining us in September 2020 that we are working really hard to adjust our transition processes due to the Covid 19 school closures. You are at the forefront of our planning and we are working closely with our primary colleagues.  We understand how important it is to ensure we provide as much support as possible to ensure that students feel prepared and ready to start at Temple Moor, even in these unusual circumstances.

Year 6 Transition

“The benefits of our comprehensive transition process will be that:

  • Pupils arrive at Temple Moor confident and secure in their next step
  • Parents are both fully aware and informed at all stages of how school life will change
  • Pupils are allocated to a suitable form and teaching groups, based on pastoral and academic information from primary school
  • Learning is able to begin quickly in September, as pupils have prior experience of the school.”

Mr A Beecroft, Senior Assistant Principal – Student Experience

We know how daunting the move to secondary school can be for both students and parents/carers. We do lots of work with Year 6 to try to make this as smooth and easy as possible for everyone.

We have strong links with our partner primary schools. Throughout the year, staff work closely together to share good practice and link learning at Key stage 2 and 3.

Once students arrive with us in September we do a lot of work as a Pastoral Team to help with the settling in process.

Please feel free to contact Mr Beecroft, Senior Assistant Principal, Student Experience, or Miss Lawton, Administrator should you have any questions or concerns 0113 3900 770.
