We recognise that transitions can be difficult for a child with SEN and we take steps to ensure that any transition is a smooth as possible.

 

If your child is joining us from another school:

  • The SENCO will visit pre-schools with the Foundation Stage Leader when appropriate.

  • If your child would be helped by a book/passport to support them in understanding moving on, then one will be made for them.

  • Your child will be able to visit our school and stay for a  number of taster sessions, if this is appropriate.

 

When moving classes in school:

  • Information will be passed on to the new class teacher in advance and in most cases a planning meeting will take place with the new teacher. IEPs or provision maps will be shared with the new teacher.

  • If your child would be helped by a book/passport to support them in understanding moving on, then one will be made for them.

 

If your child is moving  to another school:

  • We will contact the school SENCO and ensure he/she knows about any special arrangements or support that need to be made for your child. Where possible, a planning meeting will take place with the SENCO from the new school.

  • We will make sure that all records about your child are passed on as soon as possible.

  • If your child would be helped by a book/passport to support them in understanding moving on, then one will be made for them.

 

In Year 6:

  • The SENCO will discuss the specific needs of your child with the SENCO of the child’s secondary school. In most cases, a transition review meeting, to which you will be invited, will take place with the SENCO from the new school.

  • Your child will participate in focused learning relating to aspects of transition, to support their understanding of the changes ahead.

  • Where possible, your child will visit their new school on several occasions, and in some cases staff from the new school will visit your child in this school.

  • If your child would be helped by a book/passport to support them in understand moving on, then one will be made for them.
