Mattersey Primary School

Transition to Secondary School

We aim to prepare our pupils as well as we can for their next steps- moving onto secondary school.

We are a feeder school to The Elizabethan Academy in Retford. We work very closely with them and this supports our pupils in a range of ways: 

Visits to the academy to attend sporting events throughout the academic year. 

Staff communicating closely to ensure a smooth handover when your child moves into Year 7.

Year 6 transition week in July to prepare pupils for moving into Year 7.

Specialist teacher visits to work with our pupils- such as Expressive Arts workshops, Languages teaching. 

Visits from the Principal, Mrs Horrocks and Dylan the dog. 

Strong links with the SENCO who meets regularly with our school SENCO.

A few of our pupils select to go on to the Queen Elizabeth's High School at Gainsborough in Year 7 and so we ensure there is a good handover from staff to enable a successful transition. We also visit QEHS to attend events throughout the year, such as their STEM fair.
