The William Allitt School
The William Allitt School have put together some useful information for parents/carers to access on their school website The William Allitt School - Year 6 Transition 2021 - you may find this information useful too as a starting point for what’s to come in the coming months, subject to government guidelines. The information includes their Transition Booklet, Data Collection Form, their Virtual Open Evening Presentation and Year 7 curriculum information. This hopefully answers any initial questions you or parents/carers may have. They have asked on their school website that the Data Collection Form is returned to them either by post or via their school transition email address firstname.lastname@example.org by June 2021. They will be sending out reminders nearer the time.
The transition days which were due to take place on Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th June, have been cancelled. An email has been sent from the Year 6 team (23.06.2021) which further information regarding this.

Here is an update on the following information regarding Year 6 Transition to The William Allitt School. William Allitt School will email parents to inform them of the same message. If you would kindly share on your school communication methods with parents that would great, so that they receive the same message from yourselves as well. Please find attached details regarding our Summer Activity Programme and parental consent forms. Parents are to complete and return by Wednesday 14th July 2021 to secure their child’s place on the programme. Parents/carers are reminder that their child’s data collection form will need to be completed prior to them starting with us in September. If a child require a school bus pass, the transport application form will need to be completed and returned to us so that we can notify the bus company by the end of this academic year. Completed forms can either be posted to the school or emailed to email@example.com
Year 6’s will have access to their own personal school laptop to support their education with us at The William Allitt School. All students will require a parental laptop consent form to be completed so that each year 6 student can be issued with their laptop either in August during the Summer Activity Programme or in September.
