Year 6 Transition
We are so pleased to welcome you to Broomfield School in the class of Year 7 for September 2022!
This page contains all the information you need for your journey from Year 6 to Year 7.
At Broomfield we are proud of the programme we provide to support both children and their families on the journey from Primary to Secondary. We recognise that this time can be one of many emotions; excitement, trepidation and enthusiasm. We ensure that from Secondary Offer Day onwards you have access to all the information you need about Broomfield School.
A special welcome
Documents you will have received on March 1st 2022
From Primary School to Broomfield School....
Over the next 6 months you will have plenty of opportunity to experience life at Broomfield and get to know your new school, new teachers and make new friends.
We start with the Welcome Evening on Monday 7th March 2022. This is an online meeting where parents and pupils can find out more information about Broomfield and ask any initial questions.
The next event is the Early Taster Day on Thursday 10th March. The induction will involve a variety of exciting activities that will enable your child to start to familiarise themselves with Broomfield and prepare them for the transition to secondary school. Your son or daughter will be using our Science laboratories, experiencing a Maths lesson, taking part in a Debate and cooking in Food Technology.
Following that, your child is invited to a series of Year 6 Masterclasses on Wednesdays 4-5pm in the summer term. More information will be posted on here shortly.
The Year 7 Broomfield Quiz takes place on Tuesday 28th April at 6pm online on zoom. Children are invited to come and join in a fun quiz with Mrs Tansley, answering questions on general knowledge, sport, music and of course - Broomfield School!
On Tuesday 21st June, we have our Induction Evening which we encourage you to attend with your child.
We then offer our main Transition Day on Thursday 30th June. The day is for the entire Year 7 cohort, who spend the day with us meeting teachers, making new friends and leaving all the information they need to start September in Year 7.
Whilst all this is going on, Mrs Tansley (Year 6 Achievement Director) and Mrs Fox (SENCO) are visiting our primary feeder schools, meeting the Year 6 teachers and finding out everything we need to know to help your child settle into Broomfield.
In September we look to settle the children into Year 7 as quickly and smoothly as possible. They arrive on the first day at 8.45am and we find that they quickly settle into the new routine of Broomfield life.
We encourage all of our Year 7 pupils to participate in extra-curricular activities, offering them all free music tuition for the academic year and encouraging them all to attend our residential trips.
