A very warm welcome to The Fernwood School. We know it is a very important time for you and your child. It is the first step of your child’s future at The Fernwood School.
It is our priority to make sure your child settles quickly and feels happy in school and is motivated to learn.
I hope this letter finds you and your family safe and healthy and adapting well to the current extended period of learning at home. As a parent/carer of a child/children in Year 6, I am sure that you and your child/children may currently have some questions regarding the Year 6 Transition and Induction process, and how this might work going forward, given secondary schools are still closed.
I would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that all of the usual robust planning and particular care that always go into the Year 6 Transition and Induction process are unchanged, and are very much still happening, and underway.
This very close liaison with our primary schools supports the crucial transfer of information to support your child/children as they move from Year 6 to Year 7.
In addition, in the current climate, I do not foresee us being able to run our Induction Days planned for the 1st and 2nd of July in the same way as in previous years. Whilst this is a challenge, we plan instead to find new ways to get to know and connect with you and your Year 6 child/ children – whether you are a new parent/carer to Fernwood School or whether you have another child/children currently on roll with us.
Our current plan for the Induction Programme is to look at:
Clearly we are already in close contact with Year 6 teachers to address any questions that arise, and our key aim remains to welcome you most warmly, and support you and your Year 6 child/children at this very important time.
Rest assured I will keep in touch with you all with further updates and developments in relation to the Year 6 Transition and Induction process.
Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding, and I hope you and your families all stay safe and well in what are quite extraordinary times.
With kindest regards,
Assistant Head Teacher
