We know that you are likely to have concerns and questions about your child’s transition to Ysgol Eirias.
We wish to reassure parents and students that a carefully planned transition will take place between Year 6 and Year 7, despite whatever challenges arise from the ongoing national and local response to the Coronavirus crisis.
Over the coming weeks, Primary and Secondary colleagues will continue to work very closely together to try to ensure that no child will feel that they are being ‘thrown in at the deep end’, from day one.
As we are unable to carry out our traditional and highly successful transition programme we will be utilising many alternative elements.
In this section of our website we will provide access to a series of online videos that will cover topics such as:
The School Day,
A School Tour,
Break & Lunch Times,
Additional Learning Needs.
These videos will be uploaded to our Transition Channel Vlog at regular intervals over the coming weeks. Some videos will be accompanied by worksheets/activities for pupils and these can be found in the Transition Resources section.
We very much look forward to meeting parents and students in person but until we are able to do so we hope you find these recordings and resources useful and reassuring.
We continue to be informed by the latest national and local guidance and will keep you updated via our usual channels of communication as plans evolve. In the meantime if you have any questions or concerns, please contact school.
