Transition

Welcome Year 6!

Welcome to Transition at Longfield.  

The transition from primary to secondary school is an important milestone in the lives of children and their families. At Longfield, our extensive transition offer aims to ensure the smoothest possible start to secondary education, with a focus on both the academic and pastoral needs of your child. 

We work closely throughout the year with both feeder primary schools and external agencies to ensure pupils and their families receive comprehensive support and guidance at this significant point in their educational journey. Our offer includes in-school support throughout Year 6, and the relationships that are established during this time are invaluable to the smooth and successful transition process we aim to achieve. 

Our intention is to be equipped with comprehensive knowledge of your child and their individual academic and pastoral needs. This allows us to be able to support them throughout Year 7 and beyond, and ensure they achieve their full potential. 

As well as our 2 local offer Transition Days in June of Year 6, Primary pupils will be offered a range of Longfield experiences, aimed to welcome them into our school community over time and at their own pace. For pupils and families who require additional support, bespoke packages are created around the family as part of our extended transition offer. 

For more information on our Transition offer, please contact me at Transition@longfield.swiftacademies.org.uk or via our school reception.
