At the age of 11, children transfer to their secondary school. Parents select a wide range of schools. A booklet is provided for all Year 6 parents giving brief details of Birmingham LA secondary schools. There are also opportunities for parents to visit secondary schools before selection.
We recognise that the children see this transfer as a big step, so it is our policy to prepare and support them as far as we are able. We hold a meeting for parents of Year 6 pupils to discuss how to make secondary school choices. We maintain close links with our local secondary schools and discussions are held between staff prior to the children’s transfer. The children also spend at least one day at their chosen school before transfer.
