The secondary induction programme

The move from primary to secondary education is a major step in a child’s school career. The secondary induction programme organised for Year 6 pupils is designed to help them to become more familiar with the school and its work at secondary level. The programme includes three days in the term before entry to the secondary phase, when pupils join us and share in the experience of working in subject areas, meeting their future teachers and generally familiarising themselves with the school. Parents and carers are also invited to a family interview with a senior member of staff.

All children in their final term at primary school (or Year 6 if already at Litcham School) complete a personal profile about work, interests and leisure activities. These profiles are the starting point for discussion at the family interview and provide useful information to help smooth the transition to secondary education.
