Supporting Parents during Transition
Every year parents will be invited to an ‘Intake Evening’ in the Summer Term to prepare for your child moving to Erdington Academy in the following September.
This year due to COVID-19 we are unable to host an ‘Intake Evening’. We have collated the questions that we are frequently asked in these evenings and created a Parent Information Booklet. Please read through how to prepare your child for their move to secondary school.
