Transition this year will be very different to that of previous years, we know that the opportunity to visit the school, meet form tutors, have parental information evenings and ensure key information is shared is part of the process that helps parents, pupils and staff feel prepared for September.

Please note that we are currently planning for the following transition opportunities, however this will depend on the government guidelines to be announced over the coming weeks:

Enhanced Transition Day – We offer an enhance transition day for pupils who have special educational needs, are the only pupil attending from their school or if they are extremely anxious about starting school. This day is invite only. Please CLICK HERE to access the enhance transition section of the transition page. 

Main transition days – Your child will be invited to two transition days. During these days we will show them round, talk about The Sutton Way, meet key staff, spend time with their year group and their form groups and get the opportunity to try out some lessons. We will write to you nearer the time to discuss these transition days.

Parental Evening – Our Parental Evening is an opportunity for us to share as much information as we can with you about starting at Blessed Robert Sutton. On this evening you will have the opportunity to meet your child’s Form Tutor, listen to speeches from the Acting Headteacher and Year leader, as well as asking any key questions.  Closer to the time we will be writing to you with the exact times of the evening, which will again depend on government guidelines.   The aim of the evening will be to explain in detail how the school works, our expectations and how we plan to work together to ensure your child has the best start to their secondary education.
