If you have received notice of a posting, please could you let us know as soon as possible. Please complete a leavers form (available from the school office) and return to the school office. This will enable us to do the following:
- support your child in preparing to move to another school
- collate the neccesary records and documentation to post to the new school
- liaise with the new school especially if your school is on the SEN register
- where possible, set up a Skype link with the new school so that your child can ask questions about their new school and they can see teachers and buddies in their new school helping them to know what to expect on arrival.
We know that the effects of deployment on children can often be a barrier to learning and to help ease this we have a dedicated Pastoral Support Officer, Mrs Bev Kellett, who runs our Social Circle group specifically for children who have a parent away. Outside of this group she is on hand to speak to children and parents regarding emotional issues related to deployment.
