Year 2/3 Transition 2020-2021

We are delighted that you have accepted the offer of a place at West Byfleet Junior School for your child from September 2020.

Given the unprecedented times we are in, we have taken the decision not to mix the Year 2 classes this year. This would not be our normal practice but, in the interests of a smooth transition during these challenging circumstances, classes will remain the same when children move across to our school.


The transition process this year will be very different because of the current COVID-19 situation and we will have to remodel our plan of extensive transition activities. There is still much uncertainty about the return of children in the Summer Term, however I will update you after half term with more information about how the new plans may look.


In previous years a transition meeting for our new parents would be held at the start of June. This year the information, we would normally share with you at the meeting, will take the form of an electronic presentation.  Parents will be given the opportunity to ask any questions electronically.  We will also endeavour to prepare an electronic version of our Admission Pack which will be sent to you (as soon as possible) after you have received your transition presentation.  A hard copy of the Admission Pack will be available upon request for families without access to a printer.


We will ask for Admissions paperwork to be completed and returned quickly, to enable the school to prepare for the transition of your child.


If you have any queries at this stage please do not hesitate to contact me, but as I said previously, I will be updating you with the range of transition activities after half term, and provide all the relevant information.
