My name is Eddie Rollett and I am one of our Assistant Headteachers at Noadswood School and I oversee 'Moving Up' at Noadswood School. We are aware that 'Moving Up' is a significant transition in a child's school life and we'll be doing our all to help this to be as smooth as possible- we're so excited to welcome your child to the Noadswood family! We are busy reaching out to your children's schools to arrange visits for after Easter to meet your children and their teachers. This will help us to start the process of really getting to know your child and to answer any questions they may have.
With this in mind, I'd like to draw your attention to some key dates for your diary:
Transition Evening - 28/06/2023. We'll be writing to you nearer the time but this an evening specifically for parents and carers. On this evening, we'll talk to you about important details for new families, and you'll have the opportunity to ask questions.
Moving Up Days - 05/07/2023 and 06/07/2023. Pupils will join us for two dedicated 'Moving Up' days. They'll get to meet their head of year, tutor, and experience lessons at Noadswood.
Summer Camp- 24/07/2023 and 25/07/2023. You may re-call that in previous years the government provided funding for all schools to host a 'Summer School.' Whilst that funding is no longer available, we felt it was such a valuable experience, we'll be hosting it again this year. This is a completely free event and a fantastic opportunity for year 6 pupils to meet new friends, experience our school, meet our staff and pupils. Pupils can attend one or both days, but we please ask no half days. Each day they'll rotate around 3 fantastic opportunities, the timings are below:
|9.00am - 9.20am||Arrival|
|9.20am - 10.35am||Activity 1|
|10.35am - 11.00am||Break|
|11.00am - 12.15pm||Activity 2|
|12.15pm - 1.00pm||Lunch|
|1.00pm - 2.15pm||Activity 3|
If your child would be interested in attending our Summer Camp, we will be communicating with you nearer the time with details of how to sign up.
Year 7 First Day of School: 04/09/2023. When your child joins us in September, they will have a day where only Year 7 and Year 11 are in school. They will spend the day with their tutor, have a tour of school and experience some lessons.
We will be in contact in the coming weeks with regards to uniform. We will be sending you a data form to complete, this is so we can ensure that we have all of the relevant information that we need prior to your child attending.
I hope that you are excited to join us and if you have any questions, please do email our dedicated moving up email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
