The visits to schools continued this week with a drop into Downham Feoffees Primary School to meet parents and students and their Year 6 teacher. The students appeared genuinely excited about their new school and it was great to talk to them and answer their questions.Thank you to the staff who made me so welcome.  I look forward to seeing the students along with the rest of the cohort again during the transition and uniform events in the coming weeks. Thank you to the staff who made me so welcome.

This week, parents should have received their Home School Agreement, Pupil Information Sheet and Transition Letter. Unfortunately, there was a mistake on the letter regarding the dates for the Transition Week. I can confirm that the correct dates for LECA students are July 3rd, 4th and 5th. Friday 6th is for Neale Wade Academy feeder primaries only. Apologies for any confusion this has caused. 

Thursday June 29th is our next key date for the Transition Evening at Neale Wade Academy running from 5pm-7pm. The Littleport team will be based in the English department and parents will be directed to their child's form tutor where they can hand in their signed Home School Agreements and Pupil Information Sheets. The tutors and myself will also be on hand to answer any questions and there will be stalls in the main hall showcasing Go4Schools, ParentPay and SIMs. It will be an extremely useful evening for all parents and students and another opportunity to learn more about our systems and procedures. I look forward to meeting you there and to welcoming the cohort to Neale Wade for the Transition week.

Finally, uniform fittings are being arranged by the Littleport primaries for those who cannot make it to the pop-up shop on July 17th, Neale Wade. I would highly recommend coming to the fitting at Neale Wade as you will be able to order the uniform and, in most cases, take away the free items we are providing for every student on the night. If you can't make it, the Littleport primaries will fit your child, take your order and sizings for the free items and forward these to LECA. We will then arrange delivery.
