Year 6 - Health and Wellbeing Questionnaire - Thursday 14th March 2024

On Thursday, the school nursing team will be visiting the children in year 6 and they will be completing a questionnaire about their physical and mental health and wellbeing. This is done to ensure that children are supported as they move into secondary school. Please see the letter below for more information and to opt out if you wish for your child not to complete the questionnaire on Thursday.

Year 5 and 6 Secondary School Open Evenings


For parents of children in year 6, it will soon be time to decide and apply for your child's secondary school place. The deadline for applications this year is Tuesday 31st October. Over the next few weeks, you will receive a letter which details the application process. This may be delivered through the post or your child may bring it home from school. 

In preparation for the application deadline, many secondary schools are holding open evenings where you will be able to meet the school staff, see the school and classrooms and discuss any questions you may have. Dates and times of local secondary school open evenings can be found below. Please be sure to visit the school's own website as some schools request that you book a place for open evenings. Parents of year 5 children are also welcome to visit secondary school open evenings.
