The Rydal Academy is fully committed to the welfare of each child and therefore care and attention is given to each stage of the child’s transition whether it be on entry to the school at nursery or reception, within school from year to year, entry into school mid-year or transition to secondary school. 

*See Pupil Transition Policy


At the end of Key Stage 2 our pupils transfer to a variety of schools across the Local Authority. Transition arrangements vary from school to school. Staff will consult with Year 7 staff from all relevant schools and extended transition arrangements can be put in to place for any vulnerable or apprehensive pupils.
