At The Market Weighton School we wish to see your children happily settled in their new school and to support this we provide a range of activities that take place throughout Year 6. We believe our relatively small size and ability to get to know all new students quickly allows for a smooth transition into life at their new school.
Y6 Open Evening
An opportunity for parents and children to look around the site and facilities, whilst also attending a talk aimed at parents of future students. In addition to this, there will be members of staff on hand throughout the night to offer advice on Special Education Needs, school transport and the canteen will also be open for some sample food. Department staff from all subjects will also be available to provide curriculum advice and to demonstrate classroom activities.
Head of Year 7 – Q and A Visits
Head of Year 7, Mr A Yeadon, will be visiting all of the feeder primary schools to give the Year 6 students the chance to ask any burning questions and try and give them an idea of what it is like to be a student at The Market Weighton School.
Students identified by our feeder primary schools will have the opportunity to visit TMWS for an afternoon to familiarise themselves with the SEN Department, taking part in fun activities aimed at developing confidence. Parents of these students are welcome to join us at the end of the afternoon.
Your child will spend a full day at TMWS and will meet their tutor and begin to learn the way around the site, they will also attend sample lessons and meet other children in the class.
Parent Information Evening
All Year 6 parents are invited to visit The Market Weighton School for this evening. This will provide you with the opportunity to meet the Headteacher, Head of Year 7, SENCO and your child’s Form Tutor, to discuss any concerns that you or your child may have about the transfer to secondary school.
