Support for students starting secondary school

Starting Secondary School with BBC Bitesize

Today marks the launch of Starting Secondary School, a new BBC Bitesize campaign aimed at 10 to 12 year olds, their parents and teachers, offering practical advice and emotional support to help take the stress out of taking the next big step.

With SATs now complete and focus shifting towards children leaving primary school, this campaign shines a light on the great potential of starting afresh in secondary school.

Practical advice for students and parents.

Using the highly successful format of peer to peer advice, Starting Secondary School partners with CBBC documentary series Our School to get first-hand experience from children who have made the move and, not only survived, but thrived.

On BBC Teach there are bespoke classroom clips and resources, in partnership with YoungMinds, that can be used as the start of discussions around transition as well as case studies of schools from across the UK that have particularly successful transition projects.

There are also tips for parents on how to best support their children emotionally and practically, as well as expert advice on topics such as bullying and online safety.

Consultation re: James Montgomery Academy Trust (JMAT)

We are asking for your opinions about what is undoubtedly one of the most important decisions we will make on behalf of Meadow View Primary School. We would like to seek your views on the decision that would see Meadow View Primary School become part of James Montgomery Academy Trust (JMAT).

Please take the time to read the Consultation Letter re: JMAT issued to parents/carers on 6th November 2018, which is available to download.

What happens now? - The letter marks the start of an information sharing and opinion gathering, through which we will gain the views of our parents/carers, pupils and staff. After this the governing body will look to discuss, respond to and shape the future arrangements in the best interest of our school.

How do I have my say? - Having read the details of why we have reached this decision, we now invite you to participate in our consultation to give your opinion. You will be able to contribute your opinion in one of the following ways:

  • Attend one of the consultation meetings we are holding at school on Wednesday 14th November at 3.30pm.
  • Write a letter to the school by Friday 16th November 2018 marked for the attention of the Chair of Governors.
