Year 6 Transition
Welcome to our Year 6 Transition page. Here you will find all of the information to help you make the transition to Lode Heath School. On this page you will find everything from the Parents' Briefing Pack to taster lessons. Please explore the page and if there is anything we have missed please contact us at school.
Lode Heath School is a caring community where everyone is valued as an individual and we expect students to treat others as they would wish to be treated. Lode Heath has the highest expectations of behavior and positive attitude and accessing all of the information on this page will help you meet those expectations.
We are really excited about meeting you and look forward to welcoming you into our community fully.
Below is a useful animation that has been produced by the Anna Frued centre. The animation helps to demonstrate to students what they might be feeling is normal and shares different concerns. This would be beneficial to all students and parents to watch.
Hear From our Students
There are no better people to talk to about a school than the students. Have a look at this video of current Y7 students who also missed face to face transition last year. We hope this video puts your mind at rest if you are someone who is feeling a little nervous or worried about coming to school. Hopefully their stories and advice will support you during this new and exciting time!
Advice for Parents and Carers
Supporting children's transition to secondary school is an evidence-based guidance for parents and carers, written with input from clinicians at the Centre and teachers.
This short guide provides tips about how children preparing for, or going through, the transition to secondary school can best be supported by their parents and carers. It includes guidance which explains why the transition can be difficult for some children, and practical advice such as talking and connecting with the new school, as well as suggested resources that children and parents and carers may find useful.
Taster Online Lessons
