The Buckingham School

Getting to know your child

As part of the transition process, we gather as much information about the children starting with us. We talk with Year 6 teachers, primary SENDCos,  and under normal circumstances would meet all children at their own primary school setting and again at our two day Induction programme.  

Our friendship form also gives children the opportunity to tell us in their own words, what their strengths and interests are,  what they are looking forward to and to name a few students who are also moving to The Buckingham School in order that we can create tutor groups.   In cases where a child is the only one from a school, we partner them up with children with similar circumstances and interests.

We have included below a set of downloadable pages your child might wish to complete.  They are not compulsory but may offer additional information to share with us. They can be posted to The Buckingham School, or if you prefer, emailed to Kate Bones at
