Special Educational Needs
Meet our Community
Welcome to Hall Green School.
A very warm welcome to Hall Green School!
This page is designed to make you feel as welcome as possible, and to try and help you find all the information you need to feel part of our school community.
Had the school been open, our usual transition programme would have seen both parents/carers and pupils invited into school for two important events: New Intake Evening and the transition day for the year 6 students.
We have tried to virtually recreate these events for you, with key addresses from the Head teacher, Heads of House and many other key members of staff.
Please view all the videos below where we will walk you through the information that we would normally share with you on these days.
We look forward to meeting you all when school opens in September, and hope that you and your families remain safe and well.
From all of us at Hall Green School.
Important Information for Pupils
We are working really hard to make sure that you feel at ease and are fully prepared for when you join us in Year 7. You are joining a very special school and we are really looking forward to meeting you; we hope that you are excited too.
There are a lot of new things that you need to remember so here is some information that will help you and your parents.
Be prepared– it is important that you start secondary school with all the tools you need, so please ensure that as well as wearing full school uniform, you have your stationery with you too.
Your first day (Friday 3rd September) – you will arrive to school for 9.00am and be escorted to the hall, where you will be greeted by the Headteacher and introduced to other members of staff. From the hall, you will be escorted to your form room and meet your new classmates.
You will be the only year group in school on this day and you will follow an induction programme which will include a tour of the school.
Food – On your first day, school will provide you with a lunch but please ask your parents/carers to provide you with a break-time snack.
Everyone is in the same situation as you so you should always try and get to know your new classmates since they might be even more nervous than you are. School will be a lot more fun when you have friends to support you.
There is a range of online support for preparing for secondary school available from the BBC Bitesize support section: BBC bitesize: Starting secondary school
Important Information for Parents
Uniform – you will shortly be informed of the House that your child will be in and once you know this, you can buy their tie and PE kit in the correct house colours. HGS uniform can be purchased from Mansuri and Clive Marks. The full uniform requirements can be found HERE.
The school day (from Monday 6th September) – your child’s first lesson will begin at 8.45am and they should be in their classroom by this time to ensure they are not marked as late – you should aim to get your child to school for 8.30am. School finishes at 3.15pm.
Positive Behaviour – at Hall Green School we have high standards of behaviour and we hope that your child’s day runs smoothly for everyone. However, please be aware that should he/she misbehave; the school can keep them back at the end of the day for 20 minutes; we do not need to inform you of this.
Bio-metric Registration – your child will need to register on the bio-metrics system and this will take place on the first day – you will then be able to add funds to your child’s account so that they can purchase food items from the school.
Paperwork – please ensure that all admissions paperwork has been returned to school before September.
Finally, we hope that you have everything you need to make a positive start at Hall Green in the Autumn term. However, if you can’t find what you are looking for, or are just unsure, please contact us at email@example.com and we will endeavour to help you; please write ‘Year 6/7 Transition’ in the subject line.
