Starting in Year 7
We want each pupil to feel part of EGA as soon as possible and we do everything we can to reassure students and parents during the move from primary to secondary.
- The most important person for each new student is their tutor. Students meet their tutor twice a day at registration and they are the best person to contact about any problems. Parents should not hesitate to contact their child’s tutor or make an appointment to see them whenever there is something they wish to discuss. Ms Barnes, the Head of Year 7 will also be happy to speak to parents should the need arise.
- Students must have a sensible school bag and a pencil case containing pens, pencils, eraser and ruler. Other useful bits of equipment are a calculator, coloured pencils/pens, a sharpener and a glue stick. Each student will be given a student planner that they should bring and use every day to record homework. Parents and teachers can also use these to send notes. Parents are asked to check planners every week.
- In the first term, there is a Partners in Learning Day when parents, pupils and teachers can get to know one another and discuss how well the student is settling in.
- Parents will also receive a weekly newsletter from school keeping them up to date on school events and successes. Students are expected to deliver the newsletters home to their parents every Friday. The newsletter is also available to read on the school website.
Each student’s success at EGA is supported:
- by parents showing an interest in their child’s learning and homework.
- by students being on time to school and lessons, wearing the correct school uniform and having the right equipment for each lesson
- by school, parents and pupils working in partnership.
