Most of our children move on to Humphrey Perkins High School. We have good contacts with Humphrey Perkins and visits are made by teachers and children to help the transfer take place smoothly.
Each Autumn, the year tutor makes preliminary contact with year 6 staff and children, followed later by individual chats. Later in the year all records and results are collated and sent together with friendship lists which aid the secondary school’s class organisation for the following year. There are invitations to the Secondary Schools Open Evenings for families and Induction Days for pupils to familiarise themselves with their new school. Our year 6 team is fully involved throughout the process up to and including transfer, liaising closely with Humphrey Perkins and Rawlins staff and carrying out a ‘moving on’ project with the year 6 pupils during their final summer term at Hall Orchard.
