for Year 6 pupils joining Year 7 in September 2020
To prepare our new pupils and alleviate any concerns parents may have, we invited parents and pupils to one of our three VIRTUAL NEW YEAR 7 WELCOME EVENINGS. These took place online in Microsoft Teams as live events. We shared key information and incorporated some activity for parents and children.
Following these initial virtual meetings, our new pupils in Year 7 were given the opportunity to join us for a short induction session on either the morning or afternoon of Monday 13 or Tuesday 14 July 2020. This gave them the opportunity to meet with their tutors and others in their group and re-familiarise themselves with our school site. Read more...
To support their induction and aid their orientation of our school site, we have created two short videos with the assistance of our pupils. These provide a guided tour of the school and plenty of tips and reassurance about being a pupil, life and learning at Deer Park:

We appreciate that the transition from primary to secondary school can be a cause of anxiety for both parents and pupils. To help with this we usually have two induction days in July where the Year 6 pupils follow their timetables and get to know the school and their tutor group. We have small class sizes which allow staff to get to know pupils as individuals and in our pastoral teams we have full time pastoral Year Leaders who are available to support pupils whenever necessary.
I would like to thank you all for the fantastic induction we as parents and the new Year 7 pupils have had into Deer Park School. My son is loving every minute, and I feel very pleased to have chosen Deer Park for him.
