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.
Welcome to The Fernwood School. Over the past weeks we have been working very closely with your child’s primary school on the Transition from Year 6 to Year 7. We are delighted to be running the Year 6 Transition and Induction Days on Tuesday 5th July and Wednesday 6th July in school.
All relevant information regarding academic progress and any pastoral, medical, behavioural, SEND or specific needs is being passed on to Mrs Morrill, Assistant Head Teacher with responsibility for KS2/KS3 Transition and Mr Grant, SENCO, as well as Ms Rowe, Pastoral Team Leader for Year 7 in preparation for September. Your child will be placed in one of 12 new mixed ability tutor groups which will be carefully compiled to create balanced classes across the year group. We will take into account all relevant information passed on from our Year 6 teachers including consideration of friendship information.
The Fernwood School is a highly successful school. One of the main reasons for this is the very positive working relationship that we establish very early on with parents and carers. Our Home School Partnership Arrangement, which I have attached, supports the importance of this relationship and has been approved by the Governing Body.
We look forward to welcoming you into The Fernwood School. We will be organising an important meeting for you to meet your child’s tutor on the Induction Evening in school (Wednesday 6thth July) where we will run through the preparation for September in more detail. This meeting will take place at 6.00 pm-7.15 pm.
Attached is a very important booklet which we would ask you to read through carefully as it sets out the next steps of your child’s induction into Fernwood. Please note the dates and times of Induction Days (Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th July) and in particular the instructions for ordering your child’s uniform/PE kit and the arrangements for the first day of term on Tuesday 6th September.
Mr. P Burke
