It was good toknow it wasn’t just me”Year 5 pupil
  13. 13. Message from Halton School• The Passport is a wonderful tool for sharing both personal and general information about the children and the school……• The Passport should be used as a tool to encourage and support conversation about each child’s educational journey and not just a means of ‘ticking a transistion tool box’.
