During the summer term of 2020 in order to support the transition from your primary school to Baines School we are in contact with Year 6 teachers who are providing us with lots of really important and useful information that will help us to help you to settle when you start at Baines. We are telephoning families so please return your forms to us if you haven’t already done so – you may download these below. We will continue to update this page with information, videos and resources, including a parent guide and Powerpoint presentation.

We will upload a presentation this week for you, with information relating to supporting you and your child(ren) for their start at Baines School. Unfortunately, our Induction Evening cannot take place this week due to social distancing. Much of the information in this presentation would have featured during this week’s evening.

We hope that you are excited at the prospect of starting here at Baines in September ready to learn a whole range of new subjects in a new environment with lots of new class mates and lots of new teachers. We want you to feel confident and excited about moving to Baines and that is why we are giving you this booklet. In this booklet are some activities designed to prepare you for your first lessons in a range of subjects and give you an idea of the types of activities and topics that you will learn about. Families will receive this booklet through the post.

Transition Booklet

Please download the document called ‘All about me’ and bring it with you the you come to Baines. This will help your Progress Tutor to get to know you and to answer any questions that you may have. If you would prefer to make your own version, this would be great too.
