Teachers Hub

Are you a teacher or staff member of a local primary school? Welcome!

A big thank you to all those Year 6 teachers and staff who joined our Transition Hub meeting in March 2022. It was great to meet up in person again and to show you how your ex-pupils are doing, and plan ahead for the next transition cycle.

As discussed, we will be asking Year 6 to join us for some transition days between Monday 5 and Thursday 8 July - we'll confirm which exact days nearer the time as we will need to split the cohort.

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

This work is co-ordinated by the Assistant Vice Principal in charge of Transition (Mrs J Baldwin) and our Community Team. Get in touch by email to manc-community-m@coopacademies.co.uk

Resources for teaching your class about Transition - no matter what school they are going to

Details coming soon about this book which is being used as a transition tool across Manchester.

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.

Resources for supporting your pupils who are joining us in September

Please share good examples of your pupils' work - what they are proud of and what they are capable of

  • An excellent written piece

  • An example of their Maths ability

  • Another item they are proud of.

  • You don’t need a Dropbox account to use this service. (If you do already use Dropbox, it’s easier if you log out before using this link.)

  • It will ask for your first and last name – please put the pupil’s name in this section so we can easily see whose work this is.

  • It will also ask for an email address – please use your email. You will be emailed a confirmation of the upload.

GDPR and information sharing

For us to ensure that students are welcome and supported throughout transition, and to ensure they continue to work to their full capabilities, we will be asking you to share information with us.

Coming soon - a copy of our information sharing and GDPR processes.

Great resources from around the web
