Transition from primary school to secondary school

One of the unique advantages we can offer here at Werneth is that we have a dedicated team working to offer successful transition from Year 6 in to Year 7.

Any questions Year 5 or 6 have about Werneth School, can simply email our Transition Mentor Mrs Tonge


Our transition lead has been managing the transition from Primary school to Secondary school here at Werneth for many years nad has close links with all our feeder Primary schools.

We run a transition programme which has proved highly successful in smoothing what can be a stressful time for children and their families. This support is extended through Year 7 as the transition lead is also the Year Inclusion Manager for Year 7.

Their service is also extended to parents who have any issues or concerns regarding their children and they are available at any time throughout the school day.
