Year 6 Transition

Joining Larkmead from Primary School

We know from that moving from primary to secondary school is exciting and can also be a little daunting. Our aim is to make this transition as easy, stress-free and successful as possible for children, parents and carers. Our Transition Journey provides many opportunities for us to get to know each other and answer all your questions to ensure that you feel confident and happy about joining our community in September.

Students and families really value our supportive and caring approach to transition. We can't wait to meet you and for your Larkmead adventure to begin. 

 

Plans for 2022

New Year 7 Welcome Evening on Wednesday 4th May, with two sessions at 6.00pm & 7.00pm.

Primary school visits during May

Moving to your new secondary school is exciting, and you will have lots of questions. Meeting you in your primary school helps us to get to know you and make sure you are feeling confident about all that life at Larkmead has to offer.

Send admissions

Larkmead is an inclusive school which attracts students with a range of special needs. To address the demands made on SEND provision at Larkmead we use Provision Mapping. This allows for a range of group and individual interventions to be put in place which to appropriately and effectively meet student needs.

Support for students with Education and Health Care Plans (EHCP) will be prioritised through the provision mapping system. Group interventions are targeted towards those with similar needs whilst recognising that some students will need more support than others.

occ admissions

Applying for a school place can leave you confused and raise many questions.  The Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) ‘Starting School’ pages will help you with everything from advice on choosing a school, help with the  Online Application Process through to available transport routes serving the schools.
