Transition from Moorlands at the end of year 6
During year 6 children may participate in the Trafford Secondary Schools Selection Procedures. In addition some take examinations for independent schools, while others choose not to sit any of the above examinations. At the end of year 6 the children leave us to go to many different secondary schools. The separation from the group of children with whom they have been educated for many years (some since the nursery at Templemoor) can prove upsetting; as can the whole selection of a secondary school for both parents and children. We endeavour, at Moorlands, to support both children and parents through this time and encourage parents to attend any meetings called to inform them about selection procedures.
During the May of their final year at Moorlands all children take their Key Stage 2 SATs. These are formal national tests in Reading, Spelling, Grammar & Punctuation and Maths. Both test results and teacher assessments are part of the records which are sent on to the new secondary schools in order to ensure continuity of the children’s education.
Each secondary school has their own procedures for transition. Therefore, arrangements vary from school to school.
Generally speaking, staff from new secondary schools visit Moorlands to speak to both the children and year 6 staff, ensuring that information is passed on.
