Transition for Year 4, 5 and 6
Welcome to Cardinal Griffin Catholic College. I am tremendously proud and, indeed, privileged to be the Headteacher at this incredibly wonderful College.
Cardinal Griffin has a distinct Catholic ethos, creating an environment in which all of our students can thrive. We encourage our students to be grateful for their gifts, for the gifts of others, and for the blessings of each day. We want them to be generous with their gifts, becoming ‘Men and Women for Others’. We hope that they will develop daily habits which, in turn, will become the values that will sustain them for the rest of their life.
My pledge to all of our families is that we will do all that we can for every single student, every single day. Our students will always be at the heart of every decision that we make, and we will endeavour to provide your child with an exceptional education. The sort of education we would want for our own children!
We understand that exceptional communication builds strong relationships. We know that these relationships between the school and our families are crucially important in ensuring that every child flourishes: this is 'The Griffin Way'.
I hope that your child finds this booklet informative and that it supports them in their transition from primary to secondary school, a transition which includes many changes to routines, expectations and opportunities.
If you, or your child, have any questions about our college, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are here to help!
We look forward to you joining our college community in September.
