Moving from primary school to secondary school is an exciting time of life, but for many children it can also be a daunting prospect.
A new, much bigger school can offer greater independence, such as the first smart phone and/or travelling to and from school independently, and a world of opportunity. However, it also means new teachers, new subjects and potentially a whole new set of friends.
At Rockmount Primary School our children will participate in a transition programme which will shine a light on the great potential of starting afresh in secondary school and also offer practical advice and emotional support to help take the stress out of taking the next big step.
Our staff will actively support the mental health and emotional well-being of children as they start the next chapter in their lives.
If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), you'll need to apply for a school place in a different way.
Applying for a school place using the e-admissions portal when your child has an EHCP will not be valid and your child may miss out on a school place.
If you need support with the process, please contact Amber Pearless (Assistant Headteacher)
