Primary School Partnerships
At Little Heath School, we work very closely with our link feeder Primary Schools, aiming to learn as much as we can about the young people who may join us when they come to secondary school. We want to build on the fantastic work done by our primary colleagues at Key Stage 1 and 2.
This work culminates in our transition programme at the end of Year 6, which makes the move up to "big school" less daunting. All of our prospective students spend a day at Little Heath in the summer term getting to know other Year 6 students, as well as the layout of the school and the kinds of lessons they will be experiencing in Year 7. They are introduced to the staff who will be working closely with them. This programme helps students to feel welcome and safe at the school. Many of the Year 6 students feel more comfortable after the transition week, looking forward to coming up to Little Heath.
