Year 6/7 Transition Portal


Message from our Head of Key Stage 3

Dear Parents, Carers and Students,

We are delighted to welcome you to the Miltoncross Family and look forward to working with you to support the education, personal development and well-being of our new students, your children, as they progress towards young adulthood.

The transition from Primary to Secondary School is an exciting and significant milestone in any child’s education, and can invoke a mixture of emotions for students and their families. We understand that this period of transition can feel unsettling and we want to reassure you that despite the current school closures, we will be working alongside you to aid a smooth, positive start to life at Miltoncross Academy, enabling our new Year 7 students to make the best progress possible.
Currently we are in the process of adapting our successful Transition Programme in response to the current situation and will be in touch as soon as we have further information about planned transition events. Our new Transition Portal provides you with the opportunity to familiarise yourselves with our expectations, procedures and staff and enables us to better understand our new students’ and support families.

Message to Year 6:

As you enter your final half term at Primary School, I want to encourage you to keep working hard whether that is through your Home Learning or attending your Primary School when it is safe to do. I want to make sure your transition to Miltoncross is a smooth process and whilst many things will be different for you and you will have many new experiences, please do not worry about these things. You will adjust quickly to your new routines and remember, we are all here to help you.

We hope that the information provided on the portal will help to support you with this. The Year 6/7 Transition Portal will continue to be updated so please keep checking back on this page as well as our Official School Facebook Page.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

We kindly ask that the parents of all prospective Year 7 students for the upcoming academic year (20-21) to please complete the Parent Survey to help us gain more information to help with your child’s transition to Miltoncross. You will also start to receive your ‘Parent Packs’ in the post. If you have not received this by midday on Friday 19th June, please contact me via the email address below.
