"The Westgate School is a happy and vibrant community,
where pupils are encouraged to aim for excellence"
(Ofsted, September 2022)
Our Transition programme in the summer term will include an evening meeting for all new Year R parents. At this event you will meet the primary phase team who will talk to you in more detail about starting school at the Westgate, give you lots of practical tips and hints and answer any questions you may have. We will discuss the induction programme in more detail and explain how we will work in partnership with you and your child, to prepare for their start at The Westgate School. You will also receive information about your child’s class and have an opportunity to meet Primary colleagues.
We very much view transition as a process for each child to their new year group. As part of the Moving Up process, children will meet their new teacher and have the opportunity to visit their new classroom. Please do share their new year group's presentation and booklet to help them find out more about moving into the next class. These can viewed via the link at the bottom of this page.
