We recognise that transitions can be difficult for a child with SEND and take steps to ensure that any transition is a smooth as possible.
If your child is moving to another school, we will share information with the school or other setting the pupil is moving to. We will agree with parents and pupils which information will be shared as part of this.
All pupils have an induction day at the new school secondary school in the summer term. Extra visits can be organised by the Year 6 teacher or parents / carers.
Social stories, maps and other resources are used to support transition.
Forms are filled out by the Year 6 teacher, sharing information about each pupil’s needs and attainment.
For pupils who have an EHC Plan, the Year 6 teacher, SENCO and secondary school SENCO, arrange a meeting with parents / carers to discuss strategies to support transition.
If your child is moving classes in school, we make sure information is passed onto the new class teacher during a transition meeting.
