Year 6 Transitions


Welcome to Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy

A message from our Transition Leader

Hello to all the year 6 who are getting ready to be our new year 7 and to your families.

The move to secondary school can be a big step for a child, in fact for all the family, and for some it can create all sorts of questions and even a few fears. The world of ‘big school’ and of Key Stage 3 can seem forbidding and very different but in our experience every child will rise to the challenge and enjoy real success at their new school. They will be expected to aspire to the highest standards, contribute to the life of the school and respect others within it.

I am currently in the process of speaking to all the Yr6 teachers to gather information about our new students and I hope that I will be able to go and visit students at their Primary schools during the summer term.

We are currently researching and working to see if we can have transition days on site on Thursday 1st July and Friday 2nd July due to the current Covid situation. However, I will be keeping you updated on this as new guidance is released. In the meantime, please have a look through the resources on the website such as the video tour of the Academy and the transition booklets for students and parents.

We want to give you our assurance that the year 6 students progression and transition to OIEA will be done safely and securely and is always the top of our list.

I can’t wait to see and meet you all, until then if you have any queries or questions please feel free to contact me at the Academy.
