Transition - Year 6 to Year 7

At The Southwater Junior Academy, we ensure that our pupils transition successfully to the next stage of their education.  Throughout their time at SJA, the children are guided by our vision of "Learning for Life", and in Year 5 we start to facilitate links between children and their future schools. The focus on transition increases in Year 6 where all children study a unit of work in PSHE about transition and visits, take part in assemblies and enjoy as many opportunities to interact with secondary schools as possible. We ensure that children are given personalised support when required and always share appropriate information to enable all children to thrive from the outset at their new educational settings.
