Virtual Tutor Welcome Messages
Hello everyone! Welcome to the start if the virtual transition process. During todays events you will be introduced to the Year 7 pastoral team including all of the tutor team. At this point you will know what tutor group you are in so it is an opportunity to learn something new about your tutor and they will be setting you a challenge at the end of their videos. We hope you enjoy putting a name to a face and meeting your new tutor. Come back tomorrow to take part in our Virtual Transition Lessons.

'Super Sixes' Summer School
Poltair School will be running a ‘Super Sixes’ Summer School from Monday 16th August through to Friday 20th August, where all students transitioning to Poltair in September are invited to attend. Students will have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the school, meet some key staff, make new friends and take part in some fun learning activities that will focus on the Five Ways to well-being initiative : Keep Learning, Give, Take Notice, Connect and Be Active. The 'Super Sixes' Summer School is free of charge to all students, and we would encourage parents/carers to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and enrol their child on to this provision. Please find below a poster with a QR code and link to enable you to sign up for specific days or all week. If you sign up to three days Monday - Thursday you will then be able to experience an all-inclusive water sports day on the Friday, again free of charge.
Many thanks for taking part in the virtual transition process this year, we hope you enjoyed it.
