Transition Day

23rd June 2017
On Thursday 29th June 2017, we will welcome some excited children from local Nurseries, who are joining our Reception classes in September, for a Transition Day.
We have a well established transition programme at Shanklea which begins as soon as a place at the school is offered to a pupil.
The rest of the school community (Current Reception children and years 1-5) will also complete a ‘Getting to Know You’ session on the same day to give them a taste of lessons and an opportunity to make new friends.
Our transition day sets the scene for September, allowing pupils to meet their teachers, find their way around the school, learn about the Castle system and have some fun in a range of lessons! We aim to help all our students settle in to life at Shanklea quickly, with support from staff and older students who have taken on specific leadership roles to work with the new students.
