At Rugby Free Primary School, we recognise the importance of a smooth, positive transition from primary school to secondary school.
We understand that this may be a stressful time for both students and parents. Therefore we work very closely with students, parents and our feeder primary schools to ensure that the process is as stress free as possible. Deciding where to send your child to secondary school is a huge decision and one which must be taken early on.
We strive to
who are respectful,
Why don't you come and visit us?
In order to help you make the decision whether RFSS is right for you, we invite all parents of, and students in, Year 6 to visit us for our Open Evening, held at the beginning of each academic year. During our Open Evening you will have the chance to meet the leadership team, teaching staff and support staff, and discuss aspects of school life which interest you. You can visit our excellent facilities and see examples of students’ work. If you would like to arrange a viewing of the school or have any questions regarding RFSS, please do get in touch with us.
Application ProcessYou will receive the official transfer documents from the local authority during the Autumn Term of your child final year in primary school inviting you to select your preferred secondary school. The local authority then informs secondary schools of their prospective students in the Spring Term. RFSS’s Transition and Primary Liaison Leader will then keep in close contact with our feeder primary schools and during the Summer Term will visit all primary schools to meet with our new intake of students. We will talk to your child’s teachers about the progress made so far and any strategies used and needs to be addressed.
Year 7 InductionDuring the Summer Term our new intake spend at least one day with us for “Induction Day”, during which they will get to know key staff and students in their new school and familiarise themselves with our buildings and rules. On the same evening, we invite all prospective students back into school with their parents to ensure parents have opportunity to meet key staff and have the chance to ask questions. In-year admissions are currently administered by Warwickshire County Council.
