A huge welcome to all our Year 6 – our future Chaucer Year 7 for September 2021

Thank you for choosing Chaucer School. Moving from your primary school to Chaucer is an exciting time and supporting your transition is a key priority for me and the transition team. We are currently planning a range of activities and mini-projects for you to complete before we can hopefully meet you over the next few weeks.

I am currently meeting with your Year 6 teachers and finding out lots of information about you and your learning to ensure your transition is as smooth as possible.

Next term we are hoping that the government guidelines will allow you to start visiting us and for us to come and meet you in your primary school.

Below you will see some key staff who will be important in your transition and once you start at Chaucer in September.

Above all I want you to feel confident about your move to us and let you know we are very excited about welcoming you as Chaucer students over the next few weeks and above all we look forward to meeting you in person as you start your exciting journey with us.

I have already started some very positive discussions with your teachers and am finding out lots of valuable and interesting information about you. Miss Maddison and I will use this information to put you into form groups. Your form tutor will be a key person for you and is someone who will get to know you well.
