Year 6 Induction week information letter from Mr  Brady

Y6 letter to primaries June 2020

Year 6 children are encouraged to complete a GCC survey about moving on to secondary school: 

Moving on to your new school

Moving from primary to secondary school is important, exciting and sometimes a scarily big change and all Year 6 children will have lots of feelings about this change. This survey has been set up to find out about how year 6 children feel about going to secondary school.

 This survey is designed to be anonymous, which means we won’t ask your name or anything else that can easily identify you. The results from the survey will be used by your new form tutor to help you gain skills to find the best way to manage your feelings about moving to a new school.

 If you have any worries or concerns in the meantime, please talk to someone at home, your primary school teacher or another trusted adult.

You can find lots of helpful information on the Gloucestershire On Your Mind website at the end of this survey.

Start the survey by clicking here: SURVEY
