Are you a teacher or staff member of a local primary school? Welcome!
At Co-op Academy Manchester we strive to support the entire community, and that includes working closely with local primary schools. This can include:
Working closely together to support the transition of Year 6 pupils into Year 7
Welcoming Year 5 and Year 4 children in for taster days, sample lessons and activities
Sharing our resources, training opportunities and more
COVID-19 makes this all a bit harder, but ensuring a smooth transition from primary to secondary is still a priority for us.
This work is co-ordinated by the Assistant Vice Principal in charge of Transition (Ms A O'Connor) and our Community Team. Get in touch by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
You may wish to use resources on this site in your lessons:
Year 5 poetry competition - The Future I Want
Resources for teaching your class about Transition - no matter what school they are going to
We encourage local primary schools to adopt the 'Be Awesome, Go Big' transition project from book publishers Hachette School. We believe these are high quality resources (many of them free) that help children move to secondary school.
This is a great series of activities to work through during Year 6's summer term.
For our main feeder primary schools, we provide copies of the 'You Are Awesome' books for use with your pupils.
Resources for supporting your pupils who are joining us in September
