Induction 2017

Dear Parents and Carers,

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Wigston Academy.  You should have received confirmation from County Hall confirming your child’s place at our school.  If this is not the case please contact us at school.

Our work with Year 6 children has already been taking place in our feeder primary schools over the year with science, sport and design activities.  However, our full induction programme will now begin.  We would like to let you know of the forthcoming dates and events.

  • Wigston Academy staff visits to feeder primary schools to talk to primary teachers  (Spring term)
  • Parents’ Welcome Evening – Thursday 11th May 2017, 6.00 pm – 7.00 pm
  • Induction days all new Year 7 pupils – Tuesday 27th June and Wednesday 28th June 2017 
  • Year 7 Parents’ Induction Evening – Tuesday 27th June 2017, 6.00 pm

More information will be sent to you nearer the time.

We will also continue to visit parents’ evenings and assemblies at Primary Schools and run our curriculum events and courses throughout the term.

For any SEND concerns, please contact Mrs Gathercole.

We are very proud of our induction and liaison process as we aim for every child to have a smooth and happy transition from their primary school.  If you cannot make any events or would like to visit again, please feel free to contact us.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs S Bishop

Assistant Principal on behalf of everyone at Wigston Academy
