We would like to welcome and congratulate all new pupils on achieving a place at Ormiston Chadwick Academy. There is a lot to look forward to at this new and exciting time, making new friends, studying new subjects and learning new skills.
We are looking forward to seeing all students develop and thrive this year and we aim to set the foundations to ensure an excellent five years at Ormiston Chadwick Academy is had by all.
Due to these very difficult circumstances, you may feel worried about whether your child will feel prepared, happy and ready to start Year 7. You may further be thinking about how you can best support your child to feel ready about their transition during ‘lockdown’ and when they return to school.
To help with any of your concerns we have set up a separate email address and social media account for all year 6 pupils. Any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on OCA_Year6Transition
We will be using this webpage and social media to keep you updated with all the latest government guidelines as to when pupils will be returning to school.
As pupils are unable to visit the academy and complete our transition process in school, we aim to help, inform and guide pupils’ through the process to ensure they feel as ready as they can be to start school in year 7.
Over the coming months we will be adding new transition material for all pupils.
