For Parents and Carers
It is important to us that we meet your child as quickly as possible before they join us in September. Often we recognise many familiar faces from the workshops, but as soon as we get our list from the local authority we arrange visits to all our feeder schools.
The Transition Team will meet with the children and play a variety of ice breaking games, all with the focus of settling nerves and answering the many myths!
How do I get food?
How will I know what uniform to wear?
What do I do if I get lost?
We also give them plenty of valuable advice about lessons, equipment and general arrangements in school. At the same time the team speak to your child’s classroom teacher to gather vital information about achievement and progress that will aid their move to secondary school.
As well as working with the primary schools we are keen to build relationships with parents too. If you have concerns or questions about your child that you feel would be best addressed in an individual meeting then please do contact us. We are always happy to accommodate a one to one parent/carer meeting and also offer settling in groups to those that require further support.
We make no apologies for setting high expectations at Lawnswood and we ensure that our Year 7 students are fully supported to meet these. During the Induction Days, students will have the opportunity to meet their form tutors, go on a tour of the building, experience learning at Lawnswood and find out how to be a success at secondary school.
In the evening event for parents and carers, you will have the opportunity to meet the Senior Leadership Team and the Year 7 Pastoral Team. They will welcome you, as parents, to the Lawnswood Community, share with you our vision and ethos and invite you to join a partnership that will allow your child to thrive.
We feel strongly that the transition process doesn’t end in July, it continues throughout Year 7. As a start we welcome the opportunity to share your child’s progress at our Settling In Evening in the first term. Obviously, our Transition Team are available by telephone, email or appointment at school, should you wish to discuss your child at any time.
Who will you nominate this week? A friend who has been kind to you? Someone who makes you happy? A classmate who has shared their love of reading with you? Collect a form & post it into the box outside the library. #LawnswoodLovesReading #commitment https://t.co/SdSDApISFJ
