Year 6 to 7 Transition 2020

Welcome from Emilie Lourdelet (Transition Coordinator)

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are delighted that your child has been offered a place at Eggbuckland CC for September 2020 and we would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your family into our community.

As we find ourselves faced with a challenging time in education and across all areas of society, I wanted to write to you about your child’s transition to our college. School closures have been necessary to protect children and families but have also brought significant challenges. One such challenge is the support and communication with families which we value highly at Eggbuckland. 

The safety, happiness and academic progress of our students is of paramount importance for us and we pay particular attention to ensuring this during the transition period in Year 7.

We are currently in communication with all feeder primary schools to support students from Year 6 through to their arrival in Year 7, especially those students who will benefit from a more enhanced transition programme.​ Consequently, we may be in contact with you again to discuss further details and updates about our transition programme. In the meantime, the fortnightly Transition Newsletters provide lots of useful advice and information.

We would also ask you to complete the online Year 7 Admission Form with a choice of French or Spanish for your child to start with in September.  If you are unable to access the form online please contact Mrs Evans (juevans@eggbuckland) who will be able to provide a paper copy for completion. We also have an “All about me” and “All about my child” profile which will be launched in July.

Finally, please be assured that your child and their transition is at the forefront of our mind and feel free to contact myself or Mr Lowcock, our SENDco (details below)
