Y6 Transition


Information Coming Soon


To support your child with their transition to Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy, we will be offering the following events:

  • If your child attends a partner primary school, then a team will be visiting them during June or July for an afternoon of activities. During this session, each child will receive a personal interview with their new Achievement Leader as well as the Assistant Headteacher, Miss Tyrrell.
  • If your child attends a non-feeder primary school, then they will be invited into Christ the King for the morning of Thursday 29th June 2023 to enjoy the same experience. You should have received a letter regarding details.

The Induction days for all of our new Year 7 students are planned for Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th July 2023. All children are expected to attend both days and you will receive a letter with more detailed information on this.

There will also be an Information Event taking place On Monday 10th July 2023, from 3.30-4.30pm. Here, you will be able to meet staff, collect information on buses, school dinners and SEND as well as have an opportunity to clarify any questions.

Please complete the forms below to support your child’s transition to Christ the King.

These forms are used to collect information regarding your child and their transition to Christ the King and will only be used for this purpose. We need the information collected here to enable us to manage this process effectively. The information is for internal use only and will be stored on our internal servers. This information will be kept in line with our data retention policy.

We will only use your contact details to share information with you that is relevant to this process.

If you have any concerns please contact us before you proceed.

Application Forms


A lot of people don’t apply for free school meals. That’s why we encourage all families to register regardless of whether they believe they may be eligible. If successful in registering your child for Free School Meals the school will receive additional funding to support their learning.

Free School Meals are however an important entitlement for those families who meet the criteria and it is astonishing to think that 300,000 children who are entitled to FSM don’t actually take advantage of them. There are systems in school to ensure that students who are in receipt of FSM are not identified by their peers. This is because all payments are credited directly onto the student’s personal account and for those children in receipt of FSM, this is done automatically. When they purchase a meal, they use their fingerprint in the same way as all other students.

Who is eligible?

All children aged 3 to 18 at nurseries or schools can get a free meal if parents meet any of the qualifying criteria laid out below:

    • Income Support
    • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
    • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
    • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
    • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
    • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
    • Working Tax Credit run-on: paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
    • Universal Credit: if you apply on or after 1 April 2018, your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

    Applying for free school meals

We use Derbyshire County Council for verification of FSM eligibility. You will be asked a series of questions to ascertain your eligibility. This is very quick process which will only take a few minutes of your time. After you have applied for free school meals Derbyshire County Council will email you to let you know if your application has been processed and the outcome of the eligibility check. If you need to get in touch with the Free School Meals team please call 01629 536400 or 01629 536481.

If your child chooses not to eat school meals, but you know that you are eligible for FSM, even for what you may anticipate to be a short period of time, can we please encourage you to register as by doing so, you will be supporting our school to receive the additional funding. Schools will receive pupil premium of £1,000 from the government for each child eligible for free school meals which is used for additional teaching resources!

So that we know you have applied please also email studentservices@christtheking.notts.sch.uk . This will allow us to chase up any applications should we need to. If you have any questions please email us for assistance.

If you are in doubt about meeting the qualifying criteria we recommend you still apply here. This will confirm whether you do/don’t meet the criteria.
