INDUCTION

 

Once pupils have been allocated a place at Northwick Manor Primary School parents are invited to an induction meeting. This normally takes place in May. The evening is an opportunity to gain an introduction to the school, staff, pupils and wider school community. It is an exciting time for parents and their child and we hope to make the transition as smooth as possible. We value parents/carers as stakeholders and are keen to forge strong links with them as their child begins their learning journey with Northwick Manor.

 

Later in the summer term pupils will be invited in to experience three sessions within the classroom with their new teacher and teaching assistant. During one of these sessions parents are asked to stay to a talk covering a variety of aspects of school life. Parents are also invited to come into school to have lunch with their child. This gives them the opportunity to sample food and discuss any concerns they may have prior to their child starting school.

 

We hold an annual Teddy Bears Picnic for our main feeder nurseries to attend. Our current EYFS pupils join them and they spend time doing a range of Teddy Bear themed activities culminating in a picnic.

 

We invite our largest feeder nursery to experience a forest school session during the summer term. This is led by our EYFS and forest school leader and gives pupils further opportunities to experience school and meet the staff.

 

TRANSITION

 

 

In all year groups a programme of transition is carried out to ensure the smooth movement between year groups. There are three transition sessions where pupils work with their new teacher and teaching assistant. Teachers liaise with each other to discuss their old/new pupils and their needs, this ensures that all vital information is shared and that teachers are aware of the needs of their new class.

 

Enhanced Transition

 

  • Special needs pupils have individualised programmes of transition created for them to ensure that all their needs are met. This may include creating a transition book, extra visits to their new school or class, meeting new members of staff regularly.

  • Year two to three have a programme of transition that runs throughout their year. They carry out joint mantles each term where they all work together, have afternoon play together and reading buddies sessions.

  • Year 6 has a programme of transition created for them by their new high school. These vary greatly depending on the High school. They usually involve a visit to the school for anything from one day to a week. Sometimes High School staff visit our school to meet pupils. When pupils gain a place in their new school they are given information regarding transition. Northwick Manor also carry out a number of activities to help pupils with the transition process e.g.a trip to France, a trip to the University, aspirational talks, safety talks etc
