Starting at HCJS in Year 3

The aim of this page is to share with you information regarding the transition from Infant school to Junior school in Haddenham.

Firstly, professionals from all 3 schools in Haddenham: HCJS, Haddenham Community Infant School, and Haddenham St Mary's C of E School work together closely over the course of the year to make transitions as smooth as possible for your children. 


This booklet is created to share with your child. It gives basic information about our school, our values and vision, our year 3 staff, our site and setting as well all our procedures, timetables and learning spaces.

As a school we offer:


  • A transition morning in line with the Bucks transition dates 

  • An additional transition afternoon with an Art focus

  • An additional transition afternoon with an SEN focus

  • An after school parents focus evening with Year 3 staff and head teacher

  • A welcome starter pack

  • A Welcome to Haddenham Booklet (pdf available here on this page.)

Teachers and SENDco’s from all 3 schools work together to create 3 classes that benefit the best educational setting possible for your children's first 2 years at HCJS. We take into account, friendship, gender, academic ability, and SEN, (as well as many other factors.)

NB. If your child has a sibling or relative they automatically are allocated the same house colours.
