Making the move from primary to secondary school can be incredibly daunting for new students of all abilities. At Pool Academy we work hard to ensure it is a very smooth process. Our work begins way before the students join us in Year 7.
We have built strong links with local primary schools so students from years 3 to 6 have regular opportunities to work with us.
Parents and carers also have different opportunities to visit us and meet form tutors, as well as members of the pastoral and leadership teams.
We also spend time meeting our primary colleagues and new students before they join us, allowing us to meet the needs of our students individually. By getting to know our students before they join us we understand how to personalise our curriculum for every student including our Most Able.
