Transition — Joining in Year 7
The Transition Process
Primary School Visits
Your Head of Year from September, Pastoral Support Assistant and Student Support Mentor will meet with your class teacher to gets lots of important information about you. This will include information regarding your learning so far, who you work well with in lessons and the positive friendships you have within your school. These people will also visit you and will help you learn all about being a student in Exmouth College. Some of you may already have met our Assistant SENDCO Ms Tigwell. She will ask some of our Learning Mentors to meet some students after Easter.
We realise knowing which tutor group you will be in is important to you!
Here is an explanation of how we make that choice. We use all the information from your Primary School to organise tutor groups which are balanced on gender and ability. It is important students are placed in groups that help all students make the best possible progress in learning at ECC. You normally have at least one other student from your Primary School in your tutor group and if there has been a positive friendship suggestion by your Primary School, we will do our very best to accommodate that.
You will be invited to three Welcome Days on 4th, 5th and 6th July where you will be meet your Tutor Group.
On Monday 4th July in the evening you and your parents are invited to the College when Mr Davis, the Principal will give a talk. Your parents/carers will be able to meet your tutor. There are two sessions in the evening, and you will need to attend the one for your tutor group.
An opportunity to visit the library will happen in the Summer Term where they will explain all the exciting ways you can get involved in reading at the College.
Your parents/carers can sign up to our Facebook page ‘ECC Year 7 from September 2022’ which will have lots of useful information about transition to the College.
Parents/carers can also email us, and we will respond as soon as we can firstname.lastname@example.org
Most information you will need is covered by the Quick Guide for Parents & Carers
