Our school has various transition points; starting school in Reception or Nursery, moving from Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1 and transferring from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 (in another school). The vast majority of our Year 2 children move to Year 3 at Cedars Academy. Cedars Academy take Cottesbrooke children as a priority but this transfer is not automatic, parents and carers have to fill in a transfer application online.
The information below is to support you and your child with transition.

The following presentation gives some guidance about Year 1 and Year 2 at our school. We hope that it gives you all the information that you need but if you have any questions, please contact the school.
Year 2 to Year 3 Transition
Our oldest children are 7. Following their time at Cottesbrooke Infant & Nursery School, most of our Year 2 children transfer to Cedars Academy to continue their education. Cedars Academy is a separate school with a different Head Teacher and governing body, although the schools work together to ensure a good transition between the two schools. Cedars Academy have made a video to introduce the school. Please click here to view it.
