Autumn 1 – Week 3
Hello – Welcome back to school life and welcome to becoming a Year 6 parent, perhaps for the second or third time!
We are looking forward to another full-steam-ahead year and I know that the children are ‘buzzing’ for Year 6 and all that that involves. They have started really well and have approached everything, so far, with a positive, can-do attitude. We have been very impressed
I know it seems a little early to be mentioning it, but your child’s secondary school application must be submitted by Thursday 31st October (this is during half term week). You have been contacted, via letter, by the County Council about the process – it’s all online now and very simple to complete. You now have the not so straightforward job of actually making the decision as to where you will send them when they leave us. To help you in this process, and to start preparing the children for this big step, there are a couple of things coming up to help…
All the Year 6 children have attended a presentation by Havant Academy last week and following this, they have visited Park Community for a taster day this week. It is really important that we start preparing the children for their move to secondary school as early as possible; it’s such a big change for them, so the sooner we start talking about it, the more ready they will be in July.
Finally and as always, Mr Pollard, Mr Rugge and I are on hand if you have any queries, concerns…or you just fancy a chat sometime. Please don’t hesitate to contact us, however small you may consider your concern.
