Ecco Zone Summer School to support Y6 students transition to Ecclesfield Secondary School
Extended deadline to fill the final few places! Tuesday 5th July Dear parent/carer, I would like to welcome your child to Ecclesfield School as part of our Year 7 group in September 2016. The process by which your child will transfer to Ecclesfield is well underway and, as part of that commitment to making the transition to secondary school as smooth as possible, we would like to offer your child the opportunity to participate in our Ecco Zone Programme in the first week of the Summer Holidays (18th-22nd July 2016). This summer school is heavily discounted. We only ask for a nominal contribution to the overall costs, as indicated inside the brochure. The Ecco Zone Programme is designed to: o Provide an opportunity for students to get to know each other, the school and some of our staff team – gaining confidence in their new surroundings before they begin in September. o Provide an opportunity for these students to develop other mental and physical abilities, including the key skills of resilience, leadership, participation and teamwork in a fun environment. o Ultimately experience and enjoy the raft of activities we have on offer. The colour brochure within this pack provides you and your child with information on what the programme of activities over the 5 days involves. Regretfully, due to high demand there are only a few places left. In order to fill the final few places we are extending the deadline until Tuesday 5th July 2016. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please return your booking form directly back to Ecclesfield Secondary School to ensure this gets back to us in time. If your child is eligible for Pupil Premium, then this Ecco Zone Summer School will be completely free as we can claim this funding back from the government. If you are unsure whether your child is eligible please email me at the email address mentioned below. If you have any questions you would like to ask, please email [email protected]
, or contact me on the number below.
