This video will cover: a virtual school tour, an introduction to key staff, a welcome message from the year 7 tutor team and some key information presented at the parents/guardians information evening.

Monday 13th July – Virtual Parents/Guardians Q&A.
Mr Playford will answer any questions which he received by parents/guardians about transition. This video will be posted on the Crofton School website for all parents/guardians to view.
Monday 13th & Tuesday 14th July – Students Welcome Letter.
Students will receive a welcome letter from their new tutor along with their transition booklet and a ‘student passport’ which we kindly ask them to send back to Crofton School so their tutor can find out a bit more information about them. Students will also receive an invitation to a Microsoft Teams meeting where they can meet their tutor and fellow classmates. This will involve some ice breaker activities and will allow students to introduce themselves to one another.
Opportunity for parents/guardians to contact head of year with any concerns about tutor groups.
Throughout their first term tutors and the Head of Year support transition through tutor activities and assemblies. Gradually students form new friendships and become fully integrated into the school community.
