July - Parents Evening and Transition Day

Unfortunately the planned parents evening on Monday 13th July and the transition day for the children on Tuesday 14th July have had to be cancelled as a result of the current restrictions. All essential information for parents can be found on our website at www.deferrers.com/transition

de Ferrers will be in contact with parents as soon as possible to keep you fully informed.

Virtual tours

de Ferrers have launched a transition page:

https://www.deferrers.com/transition

You will find on there videos from staff and students, a virtual tour of the Dove campus, a map of the site, as well as bridging transition projects for all subject areas (we will be doig most of this in school - don't panic about getting them done at home!). There is also a detailed information booklet that parents / carers and children will all find really useful.

Thursday 11th June

We will be hosting a Zoom meeting in school for the children to hear from their new Head of Year 7, Mr Lovell and hopefully Mrs Hardy.  The children will have a chance to hear about the plans for transition and ask any questions that they have.

 

Getting ready for Year 7 - Maths

The Head of Maths has recommended a free maths site that the children can sign up to that covers all of the basics that they need in maths. 

Parents/carers can sign up to Numerise at https://www.numerise.com/ or visit https://learning.sparx.co.uk/secondary-ready if they'd like some more information about the course.

Please could all parents sign their children up to this site; once everyone is registered we may be able to complete some of the activities in school.
