Winterbourne Academy


Moving from primary to secondary school is an exciting and significant event. It is an important milestone which, for many parents and carers, signals a change in expectations regarding developing greater independence and organisation.

Successful transition depends on a range of things such as creating the right environment where students feel safe and secure, to supporting students in developing positive relationships quickly within their tutor groups and with their teachers, and for us as a school, to successfully work in partnership with parents and carers.

It is often parents and carers that worry the most and this can be because, for many of you, your time at secondary school was a long time ago and you are not sure what to expect and you will want to offer your child reassurance and support but don’t necessarily have the information to do so! There are lots of people here to support students through this transition period and we know that they are bound to be a little bit nervous or anxious – this is perfectly normal!
