Transition FAQ's

Below is a list of frequently asked questions, if you have any other questions or concerns please contact your child's form tutor or Head of Year.

Will my child have a locker?

All students have the opportunity to select a locker. There are however a limited number of these and therefore we encourage students to be proactive and organised in securing these. To secure a locker, students will be required to either bring in their own padlock or £3.50 which will allow them to purchase a padlock from student reception. We recommend that new Year 7 students do this during the first morning back in September.

What measures does the school have in place for pupils with special educational needs?

Is there a wide range of events that i can attend as a parent?

Yes -  throughout the school year, we welcome parents into school for a variety of events. These include the annual school production, the gym and dance show, The Big Sing, our end of year celebration assembly and many more. Please follow us on Twitter (@BatleyGS) and download our app from the app store for further information!

When do students receive their planners?

All students receive their planner at the start of each academic year. Planners will therefore be given to our new Year 7 students during their induction morning in September. Planners are expected to be kept in excellent condition and a £5 cost will be incurred if lost or damaged.

I have a worry or concern about my child. Who should I contact?

Your first point of contact is their form tutor. You can contact them via telephone or email. You can find all staff email addresses are listed in the Parent Handbook.

Where do students go to sign up to extra-curricular clubs?

At Batley Grammar School we pride ourselves on our extensive extra-curricular programme. The extra-curricular programme is shared with students during the first week of term and is displayed on noticeboards and the TV screens around school. If your child would like to join a club they simply need to turn up! If they require any further information, they should speak to the teacher involved who would be more than happy to answer any questions.
