At East Leake Academy we support year 6 pupils with transition to secondary education. As a result of Covid 19, we are aiming to support smooth transition remotely and parents/carers can find information and useful documents on this web page.
Summer School 2021
As we reflect on the first full term in school it’s important to acknowledge the efforts and resilience of our new year 7 students. Having experienced a disrupted final few years of primary education, they have started their journey at East Leake Academy with an amazing positive attitude.
We decided that to support our new students with their transition to secondary education, it was important that we offered a summer school. Our summer school ran from Monday 16th – Thursday 19th August and all of our new year 7 students were invited to join us. It was a great turn out and we were lucky enough to welcome over 50% of the year group across the week!
At the beginning of the week, the students were welcomed by the Pastoral Lead for Year 7, Mr Chambers. Students were then informed of their working group for the week – a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends!
Each day, students received a lesson in each of the core subjects completing some exciting work and even building rockets! The day began with a Personal Development Lesson which provided students with tasks to help familiarise themselves with East Leake Academy and also work as a team. We also made sure that students had the opportunity to do some class reading to embed our love for literature.
Each day, all students participated in physical activity and team building tasks – the giant parachutes were a firm favourite!
It was a great four days; the students absolutely loved their time at summer school and we absolutely loved the opportunity to get to meet them before they joined us in September!
