Transition

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR YEAR 6 PARENTS:

Year 6 Open Evening

Wednesday 11th September 6-8pm. 

This is an open event for parents and Year 6 students to turn up and view the school and all the classrooms and various activities during the course of the evening.  There will be the chance to talk with the Head Teacher, various members of the Leadership team, members of the SEN team, teachers, students and other members of staff you might wish to know more about when transitioning up to secondary school.  There will be two talks by the Head, during the course of the evening and these times will be advertised in the booklet you will be given on the night.  This event doesn't need to be booked, so please just come along and see all the fabulous things that RWBA can offer your student.

Year 6 Parent "Meet the Transition Team" Information Evening

We are holding Parent Information Evenings at our local primary schools and a central meeting at RWBA for all other schools to attend.  This is a chance for any prospective Year 6 Parent/Guardians only to meet some of the staff on the Transition Team and ask any questions they may have.  This is not an offer of a secondary school place, as you will be notified of this by your local council on the 1st March 2019.

St Bartholomew's Primary Academy TBA 6.00pm
Longleaze Primary School TBA 6.00pm
