The Wren School, Reading, Berks: Transition Information

Parents

Transition Information

The Wren School’s aim is to nurture, challenge and inspire each of its students.
The Wren School’s aim is to nurture, challenge and inspire each of its students. As such, we want to be recognised for our personalisation of learning, ensuring that students feel safe and confident. This process will commence as soon as a family accepts a place at The Wren School as part of a comprehensive transition programme.

After accepting a place at The Wren School, every student will be visited by a member of the Wren school staff.
Where students have struggled to achieve expectations commensurate with their age, the core disciplines of English and Mathematics will be prioritised in their timetables at The Wren School so that they receive additional support.   The identification of students who will benefit from such a strategy will commence during the primary school transition programme and will be supplemented with baseline testing once the student has joined the school.

After accepting a place at The Wren School, every student will be visited by a member of the Wren team. Students will be encouraged to choose a favourite piece of writing to share with their future teachers. Additionally, year 6 students will have an induction day, normally in July, where they will meet their teachers and fellow students.

In addition, a variety of after school clubs will be made available to future students to enable them to familiarise themselves with both the staff and site.

If your child is recognised as having SEND, extra visits and supportive strategies will be put in place.  Please contact the school if you would like to know more.
