Year 5 Transition

Welcome to our Year 5 Transition page! You will be very aware of the challenging circumstances that all schools are facing at the moment. We realise that changing school can be a worrying and stressful time for families, even when everything else is normal!  Unfortunately, due to COVID, we are unable to offer children any visits or tours of our school due to the risks involved.  All Droitwich schools are faced with the same restrictions. However, right from this moment, we are keen to get to know you and your child, and to support them properly (but virtually) as they move fully into our school community. We hope that the information, videos and documents on this page will help you and our child to feel confident about your child's transition to us. We look forward to seeing you soon!


Our information:

1. A video Powerpoint for pupils and parents (see video below)- This will introduce you and your child to many aspects of the school day- daily routines, timetable and what pupils need to bring to school each day.
