Transition

Ensuring that families feel well supported and informed during the transition process to secondary school is vital. Edgar Wood Academy work with the Transition Group (primary heads in the areas) to ensure we have systems, staff and the practices in place for students and their parents from the time they apply to join the academy through to the end of Year 7 and if required into Years 8 and 9.

Ms Jackson-Horner, Assistant Headteacher for Pastoral Care is responsible for Year 6-7 transition, and works closely with parents and primary schools to ensure a smooth transition. She works with the SEND team and subject leaders to plan the transition and induction programme for all new students. Our aim is to maintain the momentum of progress of all students regardless of background and ensure additional support and intervention is accessed in a timely manner.
