Transition to Year 3

Transition to Year 3

  • Our children transfer to local junior schools in Year 3, with the majority accepting places at our linked school, Heatherside Junior School. Please note, there is no automatic transfer to a Year 3 place at Heatherside Junior School; please check the admission policy for each junior school you are interested in.
  • The application process opens for parents in November when your child is in Year 2. Open mornings and evenings are offered at local junior schools during the Autumn Term in Year 2 to help with your decision-making.
  • Year 3 places are allocated by HCC Admissions Team and parents are notified on 16th April, the National Notification Day.
  • Our staff liaise with the local junior schools during the Summer Term of Year 2 to help prepare your child for the transition to their new school. The children are invited for visits to their new school before they start.
  • We liaise closely with our linked school, Heatherside Junior School, throughout Year 2, including the following activities:

Lunchtime play visits with Year 6 Young Leaders

Year 2 and Year 3 “Mix Up Mornings”

A joint Lego Club for Year 2 and Year 3 pupils in the Summer Term

Year 2 "Transition Detectives"
