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 pastoral workers 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.
