Staincliffe CE Junior School

Respect, Trust, Courage and Joy

KS1 to KS2 Transition

Welcome to our Year 2 to Year 3 transition page.


If your child is starting Staincliffe in Year 3 this September, there will be a welcome session on Thursday 22nd June. This is for all parents/carers only, as the children will get the chance to come and visit us on Transition Day, which is scheduled for Tuesday 4th July.


The welcome session for parents/carers will give you the chance to meet key staff, see the school and have any questions you may have about starting Key Stage 2 at Stainlcliffe answered.


There will be two opportunities on the day to come and visit us (you only need to attend one session):

  • 9:15am - this will be a presentation from Mr Dixon and other key staff in the hall.  
  • 5.00pm - the same presentation from Mr Dixon and key staff, but there will also be the chance to have a guided tour of the school given by some of our exceptional Year 6 children!


A welcome pack will be sent home with lots of useful information and forms to complete - could we ask that these are returned to Staincliffe either at the information evening (date and time above) or before your child's first day of school with us (Tuesday 5th September 2023). 


If you are unable to attend the information evening, below are videos from previous years that introduce some of the key staff that you and and child will meet from September.


On Tuesday 4th July, Kirklees' annual Transition Day takes place - all children joining us in September 2023 will attend Staincliffe for the day, spend time in their new classes with their new class teacher and have lunch. More details with all the arrangements will follow nearer the time....
