We would like to ensure a smooth and enjoyable start for our new Year 7 students. Normally, we would have several opportunities in the summer term for students to visit our Academy, meet staff and other students, ask questions and generally start to find out all about life at George Salter Academy. Parents would also have the opportunity to attend a parents evening, meet staff and find out about our routines and expectations.
Unfortunately, as you will appreciate, we are in very unusual circumstances this year and Year 6 pupils and their families are not able to visit George Salter Academy this term, until the Summer School week which is planned for w/c July 26th. However, we are determined to find new ways of enabling our new families to become more familiar with our Academy. This is not ideal, but is the same for all secondary schools across the Sandwell local authority. Our staff are currently liaising remotely with staff in your child’s primary school to find out a little more about each and every one of our new students so we can make sure we have all the information we need to enable a successful start for your child.
With all of this in mind, please share with your children the videos from the Principal, Adrian Price, Year 7 Progress Leader Mrs Payton, Student Welfare Manager Miss Robinson, alongside an opportunity to ‘meet’ the Year 7 tutors.
We have a number of phases to help ensure the best possible transition process:
