  3. Aim and Objectives


The summer school aims to supplement the transition process for the 2021 Year 7 cohort and assist some of our current years seven cohort.


The week has six key objectives: 


  • To support students social and emotional well-being through the provision of outdoor, back to nature, learning experiences. 


  • To assist with relationship building before starting in September with peers and teachers. 


  • To address any fears about starting school in September. 


  • To focus on literacy and numeracy, but particularly building a love of story and reading to facilitate a positive start to reading for pleasure. 


  • To build relationships with parents. 


  • To enable children to familiarise themselves with the new school environment
