Welcome to North Oxfordshire Academy!
As we find ourselves faced with a challenging time in education and across all areas of society, I wanted to write to you about your child’s transition to North Oxfordshire Academy. School closures have been necessary to protect children and families but have also brought significant challenges. One such challenge is the support and communication with families which we value highly at North Oxfordshire Academy.
We recognise that the transition process in the final term can be a potentially anxious time for some Year 6 students and their parents. We therefore want to make sure that any anxiety is minimised, so your child feels excited and ready to join us in September. Whilst we hope that schools will be able to open during the summer term and our year 6 cohort can take part in our transition programme, we understand there is a possibility that schools will continue to be closed until the end of the summer term. Therefore, we feel it is prudent that we plan for a transition programme that will be delivered remotely.
We are currently in communication with all feeder primary schools about our transition programme and have been discussing plans to support your child. Consequently, we may be in contact with you again to discuss further details and updates about our transition programme.
In the meantime, I wish you all good health and best wishes during these testing times.
Head of year 7
