Year 6 Transition

Temple Learning Academy - Pupils Writing - 2023We are delighted to welcome you to Temple Learning Academy! If you are visiting this page because you have been allocated a place at Temple Learning Academy, congratulations! Please expect a gift bag to be delivered to your home or primary school. If you are new to our school, we can’t wait to get to know you better, and if you are already with us, we are thrilled to be continuing our journey together!

Next, we will get in touch with our primary colleagues to find out all about your child, and then we will contact you again via letter with information about transition events to help welcome you and your child to TLA.

Before starting in September, the transition programme for all Year 6 students will involve opportunities for your child to get to know the academy in preparation for when they join Year 7.

Our transition programme will include:

  • Transition evening for you and your child to meet the key staff who will be caring for you, and find out more about uniform and equipment needed
  • Bespoke transition events to support your child in settling in – this will include ‘getting to know you’ events for children coming on their own from their primary school to help make friends before September, as well as personalised events for any child with additional needs
  • Email access to a member of TLA staff to answer your questions asap!

As soon as pupils have started the school year in September, Year 7 pupils shall be further supported to settle into secondary school life through their form teachers; Year 7 Pastoral Advocate and KS3 Achievement Champion Mr Williams. These key staff will also work with other teams of people within school to ensure that your child is cared for and progressing in their learning.

Please read the Transition Booklet in your gift bag as this holds key information regarding the transition process, and has practical information about procedures at Temple Leaning Academy. Don’t forget to return your child’s completed quiz at the back of the booklet for a chance to win a prize!

Please feel free to contact us using the email address: should you have any questions or concerns or call 01132 645 456, where you can leave a message and the appropriate person will return your call as soon as possible.
