Transition Form - Year 6 to Year 7

Transition Form

  • The school has legal responsibilities for the care of all students at The Beacon School and it is therefore important that parents/carers complete the following information accurately and update the school with changes as soon as they become known.

    Please fill in the details below as fully as possible.  Not all of the information is mandatory, but it will assist the school in communicating with you and will also support your child's learning.

    Please note the Data Protection Act 2018 allows individuals to withdraw their consent at any time.  If you wish to withdraw your consent for all or some of the items which you previously consented to, please contact the school.

    If you have any questions about any aspects of the form, please contact: info@thebeaconschool.co.uk

  • Pupil Premium

  • Pupil Premium funding (Government payment) is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).  The criteria for eligibility is allocated to pupils as follows:

    • Students who were registered as eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years
    • Children who have been in local authority care for one day or more (Looked After Children)
    • Students who are Young Carers may also benefit from additional funding and support
    • Children whose parents or carers are currently serving in the armed forces may also benefit from additional funding and support
  • Has your child ever received Free School Meals? If so, please provide dates:

  • It would be appreciated if all families complete the Surrey County Council Free School Meal Eligibility & Pupil Premium Application Form so that we can ensure all students who may be eligible for free school meals are identified, whether or not they take up the option of having a Free School Meal.

  • Ethnicity Information

  • Please note the information in this section is mandatory.  Any information you provide will be used solely to compile statistics, which will help us to support all our students in the most effective way.  The statistics will be passed on to the local authority and the Department of Education.

    Our ethnic background describes how we think of ourselves; it is not the same as nationality or country of birth.

    The Department of Education recommends that young people aged over 11 years old should have the opportunity to decide their own ethnic identity.  Parents or carers are asked to support and advise children aged over 11 in making this decision.  Students aged 16 or over can make this decision for themselves.

  • Additional Information

  • Young Carers

  • The Beacon School is committed to providing discrete and sensitive support to families, to meet student needs and ensure their optimum attendance, learning and personal development.

    Please provide brief details below and we will arrange a convenient time to meet and discuss your child's needs.  If required the information you provide can be shared with your child's teachers on a need-to-know basis, with you and your child's consent.  With any future changes in family circumstances please do keep the school informed to assist us in helping your child.

  • For example, the health or disability issues of a family member*, recent separation or bereavement.

    *If your child is providing practical or emotional support for a family member, in-school and local support is available for young carers.  Please contact info@thebeaconschool.co.uk and ask for further details.

  • Language Options

  • The Modern Foreign Languages Department aims to offer a culturally rich and engaging programme of study which will enable all students to become confident linguists and meet the challenges at GCSE level.

    Whilst there will be opportunities to explore different languages through extra-curricular activities, students will be allocated one language to study in Year 7: French or Spanish.

    We cannot guarantee which language your child will study, but if you have a strong reason why your child should study either French or Spanish, we will take it into consideration.  Please note, studying a particular language at KS2 will not be considered a strong enough reason to study it in Year 7 as both languages will be taught as though students have no prior experience.

  • Parental Consent

  • Biometric Fingerprint

  • As a result of new legal regulations, schools that use automated biometric recognition systems have a legal obligations to obtain parental consent to collect students' biometric data.

    In order to allow your child to purchase food from the restaurant and use the school printers, consent must be obtained.  Please confirm if you consent to The Beacon School taking and using information from your child's data points on their finger for use as part of a unique reference within an automated biometric recognition system.  The Beacon reserves the right to adapt its biometric systems in the future to facilitate its use for other services (such as library and attendance record keeping).  Where student data is to be used as part of an automated biometric recognition system, The Beacon School must comply with the additional requirements as set out by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.

    iDstore does not store a fingerprint image.  By completing this section of the form, you are authorising The Beacon to use your child's biometric information for this purpose until your child either leaves the school or ceases to use the system.  Once your child ceases to use the biometric recognition system at The Beacon, their biometric information will be securely deleted by the school.  Suitable alternative arrangements for accessing school services will be put in place for those students where consent has been withdrawn for the use of biometric systems.
