The move from primary to secondary school can often be a worrying time for students and their parents. Ensuring our new intake settle quickly into their surroundings, whilst continuing to make good progress with their learning, can also be challenging. Here at Carter Community School, we work closely with our feeder primary schools to ensure that we offer the very best transition programme for all of our students, helping to make the move from primary to secondary school a smooth and exciting one.

What We Offer

Carter Community School’s innovative transition programme is built upon a diverse range of activities, helping our new intake to maintain the sense of belonging felt in primary, whilst also providing care, guidance and support and helping to dispel any worries and fears that new students and their parents may have about the move ahead.

Transition Activities

Our range of transition activities includes:

  • Year 5 Taster Days
  • Open Evening
  • Coffee Mornings for parents
  • Transfer Day
  • New Parents Evening
  • Nurture Transfer Days
  • Subject Taster Days (eg PE, Resistant Materials, Dance)
  • We will also be introducing a Peer mentoring scheme - Year 7 pupils return to their primary schools throughout the summer term, helping strengthen links with feeder schools and supporting Year 6 students making the move to secondary education.
