Our policy is to make your child's transition from Primary to Secondary School as smooth and enjoyable as possible. In order to do this, Year 7 staff organise many events throughout the year. In October, as your child is in Year 6, we host a New Intake Parents Evening, so that you may gain an informal insight of school and its facilities. Where possible, staff from Samuel Laycock will also visit your child’s school where questions can be asked about life at our school.
In July, we host an Induction Course, whereby your child attends Samuel Laycock for three days, so that he/she can see the school at first hand, meet old friends and make new ones. They will also meet Year 7 staff again. During this time, there will be another Parents Evening where any further concerns or issues may be addressed.
The ultimate aim is to ensure that when your child begins school in September, he/she feels comfortable in their new surroundings and is ready to take the next step in their educational career.
