We understand the transition for the children from primary to secondary school at the end of Year 6 can be a stressful time for the children. Almost all our children go onto South Axholme Academy. We work very closely with the secondary to prepare the children for the move and to minimise anxieties.
In the summer term there is a programme of visits and talks for the children to prepare them. Some lessons at Epworth may be taught by staff from South Axholme. The children attend South Axholme for a day in July to become familiar with the school. School staff work closely with the secondary school staff to pass on records of the abilities of each child so enabling the new school to meet each child's needs. Parents are also invited to Parents Meetings and additional visits can be arranged for children with special needs.
