Transfer from Infant Phase
We enjoy a close working relationship with our feeder infant school and have strong links between Years 2 and 3. This ensures a smooth transition for every child. All the children will get to know their Year 3 teacher through reciprocal visits and we provide support for less confident children through our Transition Club.
South Gloucestershire Council’s policy states that there will be automatic transition to the Junior School for children attending our paired Infant School, by completion of a transfer request form. Any remaining places will be offered to children who do not attend our paired infant school. In the case of over-subscription to any year group, parents will have the right of appeal to South Gloucestershire Education Service. Towards the end of the summer term, before transfer, we hold an induction meeting at which the class teachers are introduced to parents and ample opportunity is provided for looking around the school and asking questions. Mrs Sarah Simons, our Parent Link Worker, plans a series of activities to establish a warm welcome and strong relationships between school and families.
