Transition to Shoreham Academy

We realise that the transfer to secondary school is a really big event. It can also be a stressful experience for parents and carers too. We take particular care in managing this process well and in settling the children in. At Shoreham Academy we want our students to succeed in all aspects of their secondary education. All students deserve the opportunity to achieve their full potential and if any students encounter difficulties we have systems and mechanisms to ensure that appropriate support is available.

Please use these files as guidance to support you through the transition process. The information booklet contains all of the key things you will want to know before your child starts with us from the curriculum they will follow, uniform, behaviour, homework and how we support our students.

There are plenty of opportunities to meet with us before your child starts at Shoreham Academy and every parent and child will have a personal meeting with a member of the Senior Leadership Team on their child's transition day/evening. 

We take the trust you have placed in us very seriously. We look forward to working with you to enable your child to gain the best start of their secondary education.

Year 6/7 Transition homework for the summer

All Year 6 pupils have been set homework that must be handed in on Wednesday 4th September to their Ebacc teacher along with their library book.
Reading is important. We read a lot in school and we expect students to read at home too. We want pupils to read for at least 30 minutes 5 times a week. This can be recorded in the reading log which students were given on their transition day. Parents must sign this. If for any reason your child has not got their reading log, they can keep their own record of their reading.

Maths is also important.

Pupils have been given a log in to Times Table (TT) Rockstars, which is an online resource to help students learn and get better at their times tables. Pupils are expected to complete at least 6 hours on this over the summer holidays.

Please contact Ms Kerr with any problems logging in (Sarah.Kerr@Shoreham-academy.org)
Please note that this replaces the Hegarty section of the homework booklet. Hegarty will be introduced in September
