Parents: Year 6 Parents

The move from Year 6 to Year 7 is an important point for primary school children and for their parents.  As a school, we do our best to ensure that this transition is supported through lots of contact with the school and opportunities for both parents and children to meet students and staff at Richard Lander.

Transition arrangements will include opportunities such as:

  •     Collaborative primary school days at Richard Lander School (for example, creative writing days, sports days and so on)
  •     Various gifted and talented workshops
  •     2 induction days in the summer term
  •     Visits by senior staff at Richard Lander to feeder primary schools, to meet with parents and Year 6 students

Transition arrangements for Year 6 are co-ordinated by Miss Watts.  If any parent has an issue they would like to raise with her directly, please contact her through the link below.  For more information about the transition to secondary school, plus useful information such as the uniform policy, times of the school day etc, please see the various links on this page.

Every year we take footage of the Year 6 Induction Days and produce a short film which is shown to all parents on Parent Information Evening. We need parental permission to do this. Please could Year 6 parents who are happy for their child to be included fill out this form and return a printed copy to Richard Lander School or a digital signature via email to enquiries@richardlander.cornwall.sch.uk
