We work closely with our linked primary schools to ensure Year 6 pupils feel confident about their move. There are constant staff exchanges to ensure there is both curriculum continuity and well managed pastoral care.
Throughout the year pupils are given the opportunity to participate in Art, Music, PE and Performing Arts events.This year we also have a new event ‘Chrismaths’,where pupils will be able to access Level 6 maths topics and also enjoy our Mathemagician show with current Year 7 pupils.
Every child who gains a place at Lord Lawson will be visited by Mrs Jacobson (Transition Coordinator) at their school. They will all be invited to attend a four day transition event in July when they will enjoy lessons, meet new friends and be introduced to their tutors and Head of House.
If at any time during Transition parents,carers, staff or pupils have any concerns we are always happy to listen and help in any way we can.Individuals are encouraged to attend the Academy and share their thoughts, to ensure Transition is both smooth and enjoyable.
We look forward to welcoming our new Year 6 pupils into Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy.
