Transitions At Watchfield


The staff at Watchfield are constantly working hard to support all our pupils, especially at times of transition.  If you have any questions about your child’s learning, please contact their class teacher via Class Dojo or Tapestry, in the first instance.


If you have any particular questions of a pastoral nature or are worried about anything family-wise and would like some support, please contact a member of the pastoral team.


For other general queries, including the admissions process, please email the school office on


Leaving Watchfield?


If you know that your family is due to move from Watchfield and therefore your children will be leaving Watchfield Primary School, please do let us know.  it is vitally important that we are aware of where our pupils are and where they may be moving to, especially if this is overseas in the case of our international military families.  Please inform us of this in writing by emailing the School Office directly on





Transitions at Watchfield Primary


At Watchfield Primary, we aim to provide an environment that enables all children to thrive and develop as learners. We understand that whilst moving to a new school, a new country or simply moving classes may be exciting, it can also present some challenges.  Through a sympathetic programme that acknowledges the varying needs of our transitional pupils, we aim to do all that we can to ensure that the move to Watchfield, or onwards to another school, is seamless.  Through EAL lessons and events such as Art and International weeks, we are able to celebrate our diverse community and to provide many memorable experiences. 


Our highly experienced teachers and support staff are familiar with welcoming pupils at any time of the year, working hard to quickly settle pupils into their new classes.  After an initial familiarisation period, support will remain available for pupils that may require a little more time to feel established. As time to move on approaches, pupils who are leaving our school, are offered the chance to discuss their thoughts and ideas, whilst reflecting on the experiences they have had.
