In order to support students making the transition to Atlantic Academy, we work with Primary schools to get to know pupils in advance of them joining us, and key members of staff visit the local primary schools during the Spring and Summer terms of Year 6.
In the summer term, we offer:
An introduction meeting with parents
Induction days where the new students can work together and meet staff
On induction days, students will follow a Year 7 timetable on helping them get to know the site, the subjects and their new teachers
Student leaders from other year groups will guide pupils around to help them transition into their new community.
We invite all prospective students and their families to our open evening, held in the first half term of the academic year. Dates will be advertised on our website in advance, as well as through local primary schools and in local press. Alternatively, please contact us to arrange a visit to our site.
If you would like to discuss transition arrangements for your child, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
