Welcome from Sukhjot Dhami, Principal
Year 6 Transition to Beacon Hill Academy
Welcome to Beacon Hill Academy. We are delighted to be welcoming your child to join us as a new learner in September 2020. As the Principal of Beacon Hill Academy, I am extremely proud to have the honour of leading our Academy forward. As a father of two, I understand the importance of wanting to ensure that your child feels safe and happy to get off to a good start. It is my intention to ensure that your child’s experience at Beacon Hill Academy serves to enhance their life chances in the future.
I understand that you will be very concerned regarding your child’s transition from Year 6 to Year 7 during these unprecedented times. Please feel reassured that we are liaising with your child’s primary school to get all the relevant information that we can in order to make this process – which we call ‘Transition’ -- as smooth as possible. When the government announces its intentions for re-opening schools, we shall make further decisions about how to manage the transition from Year 6 to Year 7 this year.
The process is managed by our Transition Lead, Mr Mahey, Assistant Principal. Mr Mahey will be keeping you informed, via the school website initially, regarding the transition process and will keep you updated with any changes and events that are happening. Mr Mahey’s support to you will gain momentum over the coming weeks and when we return to school, he will be liaising with you regarding our transition process. If you have any questions, concerns or information you feel important regarding your child at this point, then please e‐mail Mr Mahey at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will respond to your concerns.
Even though these are worrying times for our society, it is still an exciting time for your child as they progress into the secondary stage of their education. I am hoping that you as parents/carers are looking forward to a very positive five years ahead with us. Please follow us on our social media platforms, where we communicate on a regular basis. The induction programme that had been carefully designed to support your child’s transition may be subject to change at short notice, depending on the changing circumstances of the Covid19 pandemic. We will continue to alert you to updates through texts and please keep checking the school website. Rest assured that we will do all we can to support you and your child remotely.
We hope that transition will be as smooth and enjoyable as possible, and I look forward to meeting you and your child as soon as possible.
