Welcome from our Principal
A very warm welcome to all of our Year 6 families who are about to make the transition from Year 6 to Year 7 in September 2021; we are really looking forward to seeing you as soon as this is possible. Should you need further guidance you can always contact the school directly at email@example.com.
However, we hope that this page is a useful starting point for most of your queries.
We understand the challenges that the transition from primary to secondary school can bring and believe that a strong start to secondary school is essential for any child.
You can rest assured that we will do our best to fully support your child’s move to The Nottingham Emmanuel School. As part of this, we have already undertaken the following activities:
Primary School Visits by senior staff have been an essential part of our transition process. We have visited all feeder primary schools in order to meet students, provide them with information about the school, answer any questions, and discuss any concerns they may have.
Two Welcome Evenings for all students and their parents/carers. Families were able to visit the academy and have a tour to see all the fantastic facilities that we have. There was a welcome talk by the Principal and the Year Leader, as well as information about each subject from our teachers and an opportunity to ask questions of our Learning Support Team for those students that may need additional support during their time with us.
We were very disappointed that the usual transition days could not run as planned, but the start to the school year in September will contain many of the same activities that students would have done on these transition days, so they will not miss out. A letter will be sent out to all families informing them of the arrangements for September.
We are pleased to be running a Year 6 into 7 Summer School Between Monday 23rd and Friday 27th August. Students will be able to attend a full summer school of lessons and activities each day in order to familiarise themselves with the site and the school staff, as well as meeting other students in their tutor group.
You can visit the Meet The Staff section of the website to see pictures of our Leadership Team, Subject Leaders and Year Leaders.
The Year Leader for your child’s year group is Mr Jackson, a very experienced member of staff. The form tutors for 2021/2022 are listed below
7.01 Mrs Leddie (Romero House – Red)
7.02 Miss Boxhill-Anderson and Mr Khan (Romero House – Red)
7.03 Miss Rauf and Mrs Virdi (King Jr House – Green)

You will find a lot of key information in our Parent Handbook, which is available in the Parental Information section of our website.
Head Boy and Head Girl
Our Head Boy and Head Girl have made a short statement about what they wish they had known when they started secondary school. Please do listen to their advice.
Transition Booklet and Literacy Booklet
The booklets that you were given on the Welcome Evening contain some tasks for you to work on over the summer break so that you are ready to start secondary school with us in September. Please do complete these and bring them with you on your first day.
We look forward to seeing all of you in September!
