The Year 6 experience is a pivotal one for any child – they are at the end of their primary schooling and about to embark on a new phase of their lives at secondary school.

Year 6 is the culmination of a child’s time at Savile Park and is therefore hugely important, both academically and emotionally. Our aim is to provide all children with a rich curriculum and a positive and happy final year. Our challenge is to ensure that they are ready to meet the demands of secondary school and move confidently onto the next stage of their learning journey.

The children in Year 6 are aware that they face statutory national assessments this year. We call them the ‘s’ word, as we do not want to make the whole year about these tests! However, the children know that this is a year where they need to work hard and that coping with assessments is a part of life.

Each year we take our Year 6 pupils on a residential visit during the summer term of their last year at primary school. Following the success of previous visits, we have once again arranged for the children to go to Robinwood Activity Centre in Todmorden.  The children will take part in a whole range of exciting activities including archery, zip-wire, giant swing, climbing, canoeing and raft building.  These all take place in a safe controlled environment with specialist equipment provided and with a qualified instructor.

It really is the most fantastic opportunity that the children will remember for the rest of their lives.  This is an experience which they will enjoy with their peers and it’s a vital part of growing up, whilst also helping them to get ready for the transition to secondary school.  What’s more … it’s brilliant fun!
