Letters to Parents

Update letter 26.6.20
This letter is specifically for the parents and carers of our Y6 children. We know that the transition process is very different this year and that the visits and direct communictaion have not been able to happen in the same way. Here at school, we have been in constant contact with the secondary schools and this letter details how the process has worked so far this year and also shares what is yet to come. As ever, if you have any questions or reflections, please get in touch with us here at school. We will also be sending a copy of this letter to all of our Y6 families.
