Year 6 Transition

Please see below a recording of the Year 6 Virtual Transition Information Evening.

 

Norton College Summer School 2021

Our summer school will run from Monday 9th August until Friday 13th August and support this year's Transition for Year 6 students.

We are hoping to offer five-day provision but this will depend upon staffing capacity - we will confirm the details of the summer school offer in early July. Please complete THIS survey before Friday 25th June.

If you have any questions please email admin@nortoncollege.net.

Welcome from your Progress Leader, Dr Jackson

My role is to work with the Year 7 mentors as well as the Pastoral team to make sure that your child has a smooth transition to secondary school. I also work closely with all staff to make sure that our children feel safe, settled, and happy.

As you will be aware, we have had to adapt to the current situation regarding Covid-19 and how this affects schools. Luckily, this year we have visited our primary feeder schools. The primary visits allow us to work closely with Year 6 teachers and introduce key staff members to the Year 6 children. Miss Blackburn our Senior Pastoral leader will also join me for some of the visits to support the children in their transition to life at Norton College.

Our team of Year 7 mentors will also work tirelessly to make sure that all children feel safe and secure. They will talk to your child to make them aware of everything that they need to know to have a smooth transition to secondary school.

As a pastoral team, we are always here to help you and your child. We understand that this is such an important time in your child’s life. We will work with staff from across Norton College to do all I can to make this transition memorable. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us using the contact details provided on this page.

Transition events

Primary visits, week commencing 7th June

Wednesday 23rd June, Virtual Transition Evening

Virtual tour

We are delighted to share with you an interactive video tour of our school site. We hope that it supports children and their families to familiarise themselves with a selection of key areas and classroom facilities within our school.

 

 

Uniform

Our uniform supplier is Uniform Direct. Uniform Direct is currently only accepting online orders (www.uniform-direct.com). For more information about the ordering and delivery process please visit their website directly.  We strongly recommend that all uniform is purchased directly through our supplier and not from third-party retailers.

Mentor groups and classes

Please be reassured that we are currently working hard to ensure that mentor (registration) groups reflect children’s primary school groupings and friendship groups, and any preferences that may have been shared during the application process.

We also work closely with our feeder primary schools who share relevant information with us. Our SENDCO, Mrs T Hutchinson, is also available should you wish to discuss any queries directly. Mrs T Hutchinson can be contacted through email (th@nortoncollege.net).

We also appreciate that many parents and guardians may be concerned about the lack of Year 6 data that is available to us this year. Our staff are working closely with Year 6 teachers to ensure that Year 7 teachers have an accurate and fair understanding of your child’s strengths and areas of development. Curriculum leaders will work closely with their teams to ensure that our assessment systems allow teachers to quality assure assessment data.
