Year 6 Transition
We strive to make the transition from Year 6 to Canon Slade as smooth as possible for our pupils and their parents/carers.
Pupils who are due to start at Canon Slade in September will be visited at their Primary Schools by a member of our staff during the summer term. This is an excellent opportunity for pupils to ask questions and generally be put at ease about the next exciting stage of their educational journey.
Pupils will be invited to attend an Induction Day, normally at the beginning of July. During this day, they will take part in various activities and sample lessons which allows us all to get to know each other a little better.
Parent / carers of children who are due to start at Canon Slade in the next academic year will be invited to a Transition Evening in July. This is an informative and enjoyable evening for both pupil and parent/carer during which there will be an opportunity to meet staff and ask questions.
Please access the links on this page to give you specific information about the Transition process and if you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact
or by telephone
