Stanground Academy

Year 6 Transition

Primary Transition 2023


Welcome to Stanground Academy

We are delighted your child will be joining Stanground Academy in September, and we look forward to working with you and them over the next seven years of their education and development.

We are extremely proud of our students and the progress they make in our academy. A major strength of our work is how effectively we plan to ensure that all students achieve their full potential whilst here. It is therefore important to us that your child feels happy and reassured about the transition to our Academy and looks forward to starting with us in September.

Please find our Principals welcome letter saved below.


Information about Stanground Academy

Using the links in this section of our website, you will be able to find some initial information about transport to Stanground Academy, attendance expectations and Uniform expectations.

In other sections on our website you can also find information about our curriculum, our rules and expectations, the support and opportunities that will be available to your child and much more.

It can be difficult to take in all the information in one go, so please take your time and don't hesitate to get in touch if the information provided does not answer your questions.

We very much hope you enjoy reading about our school and how we aim to support your child's development and success.

The links in this section will provide further information particularly relevant to pupils joining us in Year 6.


Pupil Information

To help us with the transition process we would appreciate it if you could provide us with some information about your child (such as emergency contact details, photo consent, biometric consent, etc)

You can access the forms we would like you to complete on the Student Details and Consent Forms page.


Proof of Identification

We require a few forms of identification and proof of address. A detailed list can be found here. Please bring these documents into our main reception for copying. 

Please note that if your child currently attends a Primary School outside our Local Authority area then we can only accept originals brought to the Academy reception.


Transition Days

Following two years of not being able to hold face-to-face transition days for our pupils, we are expecting to be able to welcome our new pupils to the school on Wednesday 5 July and Thursday 6 July for transition visits.

We will be in touch closer to the time to provide you with the details for these days, but they will be a fantastic opportunity for your children to start getting to know our school site, some of our teachers and, most importantly, start making some new friends.

We have children from approximately 26 different primary schools coming in September, so if your child is the only person coming from their primary school please reassure them that they will not be in the only one and that the transition days will be designed to help them meet new people ahead of their start in September.

Transition Evening for Parents/ Carers

The Transition evening for parents/carers will be held on Wednesday 5 July between 4:00pm and 7:00pm. Details of which will also be forwarded closer to the time.


Additional Transition

Our SENDCo will also start to contact the parents of students who they feel would benefit from a little extra support through transition. They will invite some pupils in for some additional visits to try and minimise the anxiety associated with moving schools.
