Virtual Induction Evening Information
We are excited and look forward to welcoming our new students and families who will be joining The Ebbsfleet Academy Year 7 in September 2021.
We are running several transition events in the summer term, and we confirm the finalised dates for these below.

|Monday 9th August – Friday 13th August||The Ebbsfleet Academy Summer School|
Parent Induction Evening
The Parent Induction Evening on Thursday 1st July is particularly important. You will have a short presentation from our Principal, Ms Shergill, as well as the opportunity to book a 1:1 virtual meeting with your child’s form tutor and Head of House. As soon as students have been allocated a House, you will be sent details of how to book these appointments. Appointments will be bookable from 3:15pm — 5:50 pm, and Ms Shergill will present at 6:00 pm.
Personal 1:1 Tours: Tuesday 6th July — Thursday 8th July
Unfortunately, we are not able to host the Year 6 Welcome Day as we have previously, due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions and the requirement to keep students in bubbles. However, we would like to offer you the opportunity to book a personal tour of the school for you and your child if you would like to. Tours are available on Tuesday 6th, Wednesday 7th, and Thursday 8th July. Tours will be available throughout the day and details of how to book will be sent to you shortly.
From Monday 9th August to Friday 13th August, we will be running a summer school provision here at the Academy to ease the transition process for your child. Each day will run from 8:30am — 13:45pm. More information will follow about this, but we do hope that your child can join us on what will be an exciting and fun packed week, allowing them to get to know their new peers and teachers. This will be free of charge and open to all students joining our Academy in September 2021.
Essential Equipment needed for their first day in September
Year 7 students will be given a rucksack on their first day. They should bring their equipment/lunch in a carrier bag prior to receiving the rucksack. They will not require their PE kit on the first day.
Students are required to bring all items on the equipment list detailed on our website:-
- Home Learning book / folder (will be distributed on the first day)
- Black pen and a spare black pen
- Green pen
- Pencil, rubber and pencil sharpener
- Reading book
- Scientific calculator
- Pencil case
- A geometry set (must include a protractor, compass and set square)
- A hand sanitiser
In addition, students are encouraged to have:-
- Colouring pencils
- A drywipe marker
Sharing of equipment is discouraged. Students are asked to have their own hand sanitiser as part of the equipment list. Supplies will be available on request from tutors and there will be hand sanitiser available in all communal areas.
We also enclose with this letter details of the Academy’s uniform requirements and uniform supplier. This information is also detailed on our uniform and equipment page.
We recommend ordering your child’s uniform as early as possible to ensure you receive everything in time for September as the summer period is extremely busy for the uniform suppliers.
We look forward to your child joining our family here at The Ebbsfleet Academy.
