New Intake Pack for Parents/Carers

 

TOWNSEND CHURCH OF ENGLAND SCHOOL

INTAKE 2020 INFORMATION FOR PARENTS/CARERS

 

We do welcome you to our Townsend Community and hope that within this area of the website under Transition you will find all the information that you need for you and your child to make a successful and smooth transition to Townsend.

 

Please be assured that as a community we fully recognise and appreciate that for this particular cohort there may be additional anxieties, that they and you have missed out on an additional visit to the school, that your child has not had chance to experience life at a secondary school by attending a transition day and that your child has not met their form tutor peers face to face. We also recognise that our very mixed cohort will all be arriving at Townsend with many different experiences and memories of the last five months – some positive and some negative.

 

All these elements will inform our planning for September.

 

In the meantime, do read through all the pages of this Transition section. In many cases share the reading with your child as most of the information will relate to you both.
