I am delighted to welcome your child to Oasis Academy Hadley.
Everyone here are at Hadley is really looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you as a member of our Hadley family.
From experience, we know that the transition from Primary to Secondary education is so important and must happen with good care, guidance, and support. We value our partnerships with you, our parents, and we will work with you to ensure your child will learn well, make good progress and be happy at the Academy. To this end, we are holding several events over the coming months to ensure the transition to the secondary phase of the Academy is helpful and supportive.
We are keen to meet all our new parents. You will shortly receive information about our transition parents evening which will include a one-to-one meeting with you to discuss your child in detail. We are keen to hear about their strengths and areas you would like us to support with. We are also interested in all the ways in which they learn best and what they enjoy most about school. The meeting will take place on Thursday, 15th June 2023 and you will receive an appointment time closer to the day.
Here is the link to our online admission form: https://forms.office.com/e/ia1RnS43Bx
Please complete the form before the Parents meeting. You will also need to provide your child’s birth certificate, passport and a proof of your home address; ie, council tax bill, utility bill, bank statement at the meeting.
We will be inviting your child to come to Hadley and spend a few days with us on the 6th and 7th July 2023. This is a great opportunity to meet new friends and familiarise with new surroundings.
Meet the teacher and hand over
We place a great deal of importance in knowing your child as an individual, this is what helps us know how they learn best. We will shortly be contacting your child’s class teachers and begin the process of sharing information with their new teachers. This is to ensure a smooth transition and understand how your child will be best supported at Hadley.
iPads (Oasis Horizons – Apple® School)
Hadley is an official Apple school. All our children have their own iPad which they use to study at home and at school. Children transitioning to Hadley should receive their iPad in the summer term together with all the resources into Year 7. your child will also have unlimited access to so many more learning resources. I will contact you about collecting the device closer to the time.
Care, Guidance and Support
Your child will have a learning guide who will meet with them every day just as their class teachers do now. There will also be a member of staff who oversees their pastoral wellbeing and a member of the leadership team who tracks their progress. There will be opportunities for you to meet these key staff on Transition Days and Parent Meeting Days.
Every year we hold summer school in the holidays for all our children starting in Year 7. The summer school is a mixture of lessons, sports, activities, and trips. It is always well attended and lots of fun. It’s also a great opportunity to meet new teachers again, as well as making new friends prior to the September start. The summer school will take place at the beginning of the School Holidays from the Monday, 24th to Thursday, 27th July 2023.
In the meantime, please make a note of all the dates in your calendar and if you have any more questions about the transition process, please contact Katie Broadbent on 0208 804 6946 or email Hadley.Admissions@oasishadley.org
