We work with the Infant School to plan transition activities. Information regarding these will be shared this term.
- meetings with current Year 2 teachers
- meeting the children at the Infant school to see them in action
- story/ activity sessions and a tour at Springfield Juniors
- Information sessions for parents at Springfield Juniors
- Our school Prospectus
Before you make an application to Springfield Juniors, you may like to visit the school for a tour; please contact the school office to arrange this.
If you or your child are feeling overly anxious about starting Junior School in September, you can contact our Family Support Worker, Mr Rycraft.
He will happily talk through these with you and offer activities and strategies to support you at this time.
His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The majority of our pupils transfer to Westbourne Academy which is our closest high school. Transition includes a two day visit towards the end of the Summer term - usually the end of June or early July. All Ipswich high schools have transition activities on these days.
Other transition activities include additional short visits to their chosen high school over a several months where necessary and/or small group activities in school to try to settle any possible anxieties and questions.
Springfield staff meet with high school personnel to ensure that information about your child in passed on well in advance of September.
