18) What happens if my child joins mid-year?

All students admitted to the academy after the start of the academic year are screened on entry, to identify any areas of need and to provide information to staff about the student’s learning. This is passed on to the SENCO. You will be able to meet the SENCO or Assistant SENCO on the admission day.

A student ‘buddy’ is chosen to support the new student for the first few days of being at The East Manchester Academy. The buddy takes the new student to lessons, introduces them to other students, answers questions and informs pastoral staff how well the new student is settling in to the academy.

Contact is always made with the previous school to ensure the transfer of information and the child’s school file.
