Transition to school - Reception classes

EYFS September Intake

As I am sure you can appreciate, EYFS transition into school will look different this year. Sadly, we will be unable to invite new parents or children inside the school building under current government guidelines.

We know this can be a worrying time, even without the current restrictions, but please be assured that the information that you need ready for starting school will be sent to you in good time.

Here is what you can expect during June and July:

Transition to secondary

During upper Key Stage 2, the children experience many opportunities to visit the Wellington Academy secondary school. They will take part in sporting, creative and curriculum based activities and also get to know the Academy staff before any transition events take place. In Year 5, the children are offered taster days and, in Year 6, an organised programme of events takes place. As with entry to Reception classes, any children who need extra visits or support will be catered for with a personalised programme.

For places at the Wellington Academy, please see their Admission Policy and submit all applications via Wiltshire Council.
