Transfer Arrangements

Children generally transfer at age 7 from their Infant School. All these children are included in a planned programme of induction activities. Liaison arrangements include visits by staff to the feeder Infant Schools’ during the summer term prior to entry. The emphasis is on a smooth transition that reduces the anxiety and stress for both child and parent.

If your child is not currently at Belle Vue and you wish for them to join, you will need to contact our school office. They will be able to advise you as to whether we have any spaces and the process for admissions. Please click here for our latest admissions policy.

Welcoming Arrangements for New Parents

Parents of the new intake will be invited to an evening meeting in June to be given details of the transfer from Infant schools. Teachers from all year groups as well as the Headteacher and Deputy will be present to give advice and answer questions related to organisation, procedure and curriculum.

When your child does join us, we try to get to know your child as quickly as possible and we always ask one of the children to be a best buddy and show each new child around so they can settle in quickly.  It really helps if you tell us of any issues when you begin.

If your child has any specific learning difficulties, please see our page on Special Educational Needs – under Our School.

Equally, if your child is gifted or talented in particular areas, our page on Able Child will let you know how we cater for their needs. 

If you would like a tour of the school, please phone the school office on 01252 323151 to make an appointment and talk with the Head teacher.
