Primary Transition

Welcome to our Millbay Academy primary transition page.

You will have received an email on Friday afternoon letting you know who will be teaching your child next year.

It is such a shame that the children are unable to meet their new teachers in person. All the teachers are very disappointed about this, but also excited about the year ahead! These welcome videos give the children a chance to meet their new teacher via a video message, get to know a little more about them, and hear about their hopes for next year.

All day on Monday 6th July, by logging on to Tapestry or Google classroom, you can access a series of activities designed to help the children introduce themselves to their new teacher and begin to think about returning to school in September. These activities will remain in place all week in case you are unable to complete them on the Monday.

If you are unable to access Tapestry or Google classroom, please choose an alternative way of introducing your child to their new teacher. This could be via a letter or email, a short film, or a poster. Support your child to tell their new teacher all about themselves:

  • What are they like? Who they live with? What do they like doing?
  • What are their hopes for next year? Are they worried about anything?
  • What do they like best about school? What subjects do they enjoy most? Who are their friends?

Send your introduction by email to parents@, clearly indicating in the subject field who your message is intended for. The teachers are really looking forward to receiving these introductions and will be eager to reply as soon as they are able to.
