New Year 7 Students - September 2024

Primary to Secondary Transition - 14th June 2024

It has been our pleasure to meet our new Year 7 intake both at interview and also on induction day and to hear such lovely feedback from staff about the children.  We hope your child is excited about starting secondary education.

This letter from the Headteacher has sent to all parents/carers of Year 6 children due to start with us in September.  Please read it carefully so that you and your child are prepared for their transition to secondary school.

We look forward to seeing our new Year 7 cohort in September.

Preparing Your Child for Secondary School over the Summer Holidays

We know that moving from primary to secondary school can sometimes be a big step for a child, and their parents or carers, so we try to make the transition as smooth as possible.  We run a unique transition programme for our new students before they arrive at the Academy which involves visits to primary schools, one-to-one interviews and an induction day, all of which we know from experience helps to ensure a successful move to secondary school.  Occasionally a student will need further support after they start at the Academy.  In this case we offer a primary-secondary transition group which will ensure that, within a few weeks, a student is feeling secure, happy and confident about life at Southfields Academy.

The BBC has put together some information to support parents / carers with children transferring to secondary school.  Click here to visit.

Our successes

Our students make amazing progress in such a variety of ways, and we pride ourselves on the pastoral care that we give them.  We see each child as an individual, and we will do our utmost to ensure that the needs of all of our students are met during their time at the Academy to equip them for a successful future.

I look forward to welcoming your child to the Southfields Academy family in September.
