We consider that successful transition depends on a range of things such as creating the right environment where students feel safe and secure, to supporting students in developing positive relationships quickly within their tutor groups and with their teachers, and for us as a school, to successfully work in partnership with parents and carers.
It is often parents and carers that worry the most and this can be because, for many of you, your time at secondary school was a long time ago and you are not sure what to expect and you will want to offer your child reassurance and support but don’t necessarily have the information to do so! There are lots of people here to support students through this transition period and we know that they are bound to be a little bit nervous or anxious – this is perfectly normal!
"Welcome to BSCS, my name is Rachelle Wittcomb and I am the Head of Year 7.
I am sure this is an anxious time for you all as parents/carers and that you have many questions about your child starting with us in September. I want to take this opportunity to reassure you that we are busy planning our transition process for your child and we are very excited to welcome you and your family to our school community! We will be regularly updating our website with information regarding transition and you can access this through the ‘quick links’ tab on the left, and clicking on Transition.
I look forward to meeting you all personally soon.
