Dear Parent / Carer,

Welcome to the Willows High School community! I would like to introduce myself and set the wheels in motion for a smooth transition from primary to secondary school for your child.

As we are in this period where schools are not operating as normal and most pupils have been educated at home for the last ten weeks or so, you may feel a little concerned about how to cope with the move to secondary on top of everything else. Every year at this time, pupils, parents and carers have lots of questions; only this year it is slightly different.

Although this is a strange situation we find ourselves in, I believe that it can also be turned into a positive. Transition is a good example of this where, I believe, this situation presents us with much more flexibility and hence many more opportunities.

Our relationship with our primary school partners is excellent with us all working together, I know that we will produce a package of transition which really will make the move as smooth as possible. In the coming weeks, you will hear about our exciting plans in more detail as well as some more practical advice (such as uniform, lunches and so on). This letter is just the first of many contacts and opportunities you will be offered, which will hopefully ensure you have all of the support you need at this time.

One of the first things I would like to do is ask for any questions that you may have to be sent to me using the email address transition@willows.cardiff.sch.uk or alternatively contact Sam on our dedicated transition phone number which is 0759203819.

Whether the question comes from you or your son / daughter, whether it is about something really basic or something more complicated, it doesn’t really matter; the important thing is that we get the opportunity to give you the information you need at this time.

Finally, thank you for choosing Willows High School for your son / daughter and I know, I, along with every member of staff, will work tirelessly to ensure that every single day at Willows is a happy and successful one.

Best wishes,

MR C NORMAN

Headteacher
