Dear Year 6, 

We would like you to send us your views on moving on to your new schools. Some of you will be very excited about this and some of you may be feeling very nervous. All of these feelings are natural and your heads must be full of questions that you want to ask. We are asking for you to send us your concerns, stories that you have been told, things that you are excited about and the questions that you would like to ask. These will then help the trust to create a virtual transition programme, which will be shared will you all soon. 

Please send these to me, at this email address:

You could also write them down and send a photo or Tweet. 

We are looking forward to hearing from you and we hope that you are all happy, safe and well. 

From Mrs. Singleton and Miss Croll.
