At Rise Park Primary and Nursery School, we take supporting our children with transition to Secondary school very importantly. Mr Husbands is our lead with this and has produced this list to show what we do. We have also jointly produced this video with our local group of schools (Robin Hood, Westglade, Southglade, Henry Whipple, Glade Hill, Top Valley Academy and Oak Wood Academy) as part of our working partnership (Aspire Learning Partnership).
