As you will be aware, circumstances have changed for all of us over recent weeks and transition for your child has also developed a ‘New Normal’. To support you and your child, we have attached a parent guide for transition, which we hope will answer most of your questions and concerns.
On the 1st June, we will be sending out a pupil transition booklet, which we hope will help your child with their move to Chichester High School. In the pupil booklet, there is some guidance on accessing Seneca learning and a code has been given for English and Maths. Your child may be returning to their Primary School on the 1st of June, but we have also attached additional workbooks for English and Maths which they can do at home over the coming weeks in preparation for attending Chichester High School.
We will be uploading on our website, a video that our Heads of House and senior members of staff have put together so that your child can hear from them all individually and put a name to a face. We hope to make another one towards the end of June with your child’s tutor. Please do encourage your child to watch them.
Over the next two weeks, our teachers will begin phoning each one of you. This will give you and your child the opportunity to ask questions to ease some concerns that you may have. The teachers will mostly be from your child’s house.
After half-term, we will be looking at further ways to provide support for your child as they make the transition to Chichester High School. You will also be able to locate a copy of all the booklets on our website.
We look forward to welcoming your child to Chichester High School and hope this goes someway in supporting and helping them through this unprecedented time.
