VALE OF YORK ACADEMY IS PART OF

Induction Day

Moving to Vale of York Academy

Helpful information for those transitioning from Y6 to Vale of York Academy
Taster Days

Taster days take place every July and are designed to give you an idea of what daily life is like in Vale of York Academy. Your child will attend our school for the full day to experience school life, meet their new form tutor and fellow tutees.

They will arrive here and be met in the Hall by their Year Learning Leader and their form tutor. They will then have an opportunity to meet their form group and tutor.

A tour of the school will take place and also time to meet and talk with existing students so that they can ask any questions that they have and get a feel for the building and its grounds.

During the day they will spend the day on a sample timetable. This sample timetable may include Geography, English, PE, Languages, Science, Drama and many more. These are planned and delivered just like a normal school lesson so that the new students can see what daily lessons are like.

During break and lunchtime they will have a chance to wander and explore the school.

At the end of the day the students will get a Vale of York student survival bag, containing information about their school, a school map, a student survival guide and a small treat.

Additional Transition Events

We want to ensure that students become as comfortable at Vale of York as they can as soon as possible, so we put a number of additional events in place to allow our new students to become familiar with the school site and some of our staff.

  • When music and dramas productions are taking place feeder primary schools are regularly invited to come and watch
  • We hold workshops in various subject areas to do exciting activities such as Harry Potter Science and Horrible Histories.
Additional Transition Provision for Vulnerable Students

We understand that some students find the move to secondary school more difficult than others, so we ensure that our most vulnerable students are cared for and monitored consistently during the whole transition process.

  • Visits for SEN students with their primary school teaching assistant on a regular basis in the run up to transition days. This allows the students to become increasingly familiar with Vale of York and the new experiences that they will face such as the school bell and the changeover of lessons. These students will also be introduced to the Base, where they can go for support when they need it.
  • Miss Scaum Assistant Head will visit primary schools to discuss individual needs of SEN students with the relevant member of staff at the primary school.
