Transition

Important Information & Documents


Transition 2022

Starting any new school can always be a worrying time for some families. At St John Henry Newman Catholic School we offer a full support package for our new pupils. Pupils will be invited in to school for an induction day. We also hold additional days so that pupils who have SEND needs, and also those coming as the only pupil from a primary school, can have additional access opportunities.  

Our Transition programme will be delivered this year in a mixture of online and face to face activities.

Primary School Information Gathering

This year, we are already well underway with liaising with primary schools and finding out as much information as we can so as to help the Year 6 pupils to transition into Year 7 and join our Newman family.


Additional information questionnaires

In early June we will be sending out questionnaires to parents and pupils to find out even more – What are your interests? Who do you get along with? Who would you (ideally) like to be in a Form group with? Where might you need extra support (if at all)? We will also hold a face to face, informal interview over our web based platform ‘School Cloud’.

This information is invaluable and really helps us to get a bigger picture of you as a young person.


Welcome Presentation

In early July we will be holding an in-person presentation evening at the school so that we can deliver all of the day-to-day running information about the school. You can find out about uniform, school dinners and all of the small pieces of information that ‘put you in the know’ about how our school works. If it is not feasible to hold this event, we will broadcast the video presentation on our website and on our Facebook Page.


A Term of Transition

Every school day from now until the end of term on this page, we will update a video introducing you to a different member of staff who will give you information about a small aspect of school life, and they will set you a home learning task.

 

FAQs

This page will be updated soon. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to contact us.
