Induction

This process relates to our Primary Liaison Policy (Governs Statements of Policy) which is currently under review.

However the following can be expected:

  • For new Year 7s, a booklet will be provided to all prospective parents via their primary school.
  • The new Year 7s will be invited to a taster day during the summer term. Primary schools will be advised of the date.
  • Children joining the school later in their school career will be allocated a 'buddy' from within their tutor group who will help them during their early days as they they learn to adjust to the school environment.
  • Every child at St. Bernadette has a form tutor who will normally remain with that child throughout their stay with us. The form tutor will get to know each child's needs and will seek to guide and support them throughout this time.
