We are very aware at Scissett Middle, that starting in a new school can be a potentially anxious time for pupils. We work very hard at making sure that the transition from first school, is as smooth as possible.
Please take the time to watch our new Year 5 transition video. I hope you find it useful and hope it answers some of the questions you may have had. We look forward to seeing you in September.
In order to make things even smoother for our children, for the last 3 years, each curriculum area has organised a transition event which year 5 pupils are invited to attend. The activities on offer are as varied as they are fun –yet educational-. These sessions are spread out throughout the academic year and as usual, this December we will start with the extremely popular “Harry Potter Quiz”! The response from year 5 pupils and their teachers is always extremely positive, the atmosphere amongst our young visitors often described as “buzzing” on their return to the feeder school.
