Good afternoon Kerenza I am sorry this has taken me so long to do but I am just emailing to thank you for all the support you gave in transitioning JK from George Dixon Primary to St Pauls. From the initial phone calls, to transition days to providing a start date all ran so smoothly for a pupil who is very vulnerable with attachment difficulties.

Not only me, but other members of our team at George Dixon Primary who had never been to St Pauls before, were met and made to feel welcome, making the experience for both us and JK easy. Staff here have commented on how polite and welcoming your staff were and I hope you can pass this on to them.

JK’s Mum was also very impressed when I brought her and having two other siblings here at George Dixon Primary meant it was always going to be tricky for Mum however she has been so very positive.

It was a very difficult decision to let JK go to another school, particularly a special alternative provision so thank you for all your time you spent making us all welcome and sharing very highly confidential information, specifically around safeguarding.

I have copied our school Principal Officer into this email, I hope you don't mind but I think it is important for SENAR to know how well this worked. Keep up the good work at St Pauls.
