Vale of York Academy @ValeYorkAcademy@dawnie_hunter Hi dawn, yes a leavers video was done however we haven’t put this yet on you tube yet. Lots of Prom photos were taken of the evening on professional camera and saved to the school system. Students can come and get some from school if they would like. Thanks2 days ago
We are well aware of the possible worries linked to moving up to secondary school.
To alleviate anxieties, we have a planned programme, worked out in consultation with our partner primary schools. As well as developing stronger links between the schools through teacher visits and meetings to discuss the curriculum, we invite all of our potential students to join us for various events in school. We also run two open weeks during the school year, one for Year 6 parents and students during September / October and one for Year 5 parents and students in June / July. This gives a view of the school in action.
We also sustain strong links with our partner primary schools. Our facilities,for example our Technology rooms, the Astro Turf and our music equipment, are available to partner schools. Our staff also host master classes for students throughout the school year. This is a great aid to the ‘familiarisation’ process.
