FAQs for Year 6 Parents/Carers

The college leaders will be visiting or virtually contacting students who are attending their primary schools this term to answer any questions that they might have. If your child is not attending their school provision currently then we will still try to get in touch and the transition section of the website will be the place to check for any updates.
Yes, we have an open day on 29th June 5:00-6:00pm. Please do use the transition section of the school website to find out any information you may need. If you wish to speak to a member of the transition team then please contact our office: office@samworth.tgacademy.org.uk
Our transition team have been hard at work behind the scenes and have been in contact with the primary schools. The schools have passed on key information regarding your child and if there is any special educational need that will need supporting in year 7. Mrs Lloyd-Trewick leads our SEND department and will be in touch with the primary schools to ensure smooth transition. If you would like a further conversation with the SEND team please contact: troberts@samworth.tgacademy.org.uk
The transition section of our school website has a video introducing the school and also contains electronic copies of activities in different subject areas that your child can complete over summer. We think these will help your child begin year 7 with confidence so please do encourage them to complete the activities. Every year 7 will also be given a copy of ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ to read over the summer. Click here to download a book review template for your child to print and complete. If you have any specific concerns regarding how to support your child over summer please do contact: office@samworth.tgacademy.org.uk
