Year 6 into 7 Transition
A message from the Assistant Head teacher…
Hello and welcome to Seva School.
Each year at this time we are busily preparing for the arrival of new year 7 students, be it through primary school visits, tours, parental meetings, student interviews or the completion of Summer Challenge Booklets. This year things look very different Be that as it may, it remains our desire to ensure that each student joining us in September does so knowing that they have the full support of our staff and students. Our school community will do its upmost to make sure that you settle in quickly and know from the outset that you are a valued member of our school family.
I am sure that it was a disappointment to have missed out on the chance to validate your hard work in preparing for your SATs. However, these efforts will not go unrewarded. The work ethic and responsibility you have shown to your studies will have prepared you well for the academic requirements of secondary school. The skills that you refined through your lessons, interventions and independent learning will be put to work in each of our secondary subject areas. You are ready for the step up. Just as your primary school did, at Seva School we will support you to develop content knowledge, soft skill and character, to be happy and to fulfil your potential. Across the long journey through secondary school we will prepare you for the next stage of your life. Whilst thinking forward and preparing for your futures I would also hope that we have some fun on the way.
I am truly looking forward to meeting you all in September, and to what feels like a new beginning for us all.
