I look forward to meeting your child at Transition Day on Thursday 6th July. He/she should wear their primary school uniform and will need to bring his/her usual school equipment (pencil case with pen, pencil, ruler, etc) for lessons. Please provide your child with a packed lunch, including either water in a clear plastic bottle or fruit juice (fizzy drinks are not allowed). Lunch will not be provided by the School on Transition Day but a free school lunch will be provided for all students from September 2023.
All Year 6 students will be registered at the Paragon Road entrance between 8:15am and 8:30am and Transition Day will finish at 2:45pm. Please ensure that your child knows whether they are to travel home independently or to wait at the school gates to be collected at the end of the day.
Parental Transition Event
On Thursday 6th July we will also be hosting a Transition Event for parents. The Headteacher and members of the Senior Leadership Team will be presenting important information for you to know prior to your child starting with us in September. This is a key opportunity for you to find out more about The Urswick School, our ethos and our main policies and procedures. You will also have the opportunity to view school uniform and collect your exclusive 10% uniform discount voucher – only available at this event. The event starts at 2:00pm and will finish at the same time as your child/ren – 2:45pm. Please be prompt as latecomers will disrupt the meeting and there will be no entry after 2:10pm. We look forward to seeing you at this time - please make every effort to join us, even if you have an elder child at the school.
