13. How does the school support pupils with Special Educational Needs through transition ?

 

We aim to make times of transition as easy as possible for the children and young people in our school.

 

When starting at our school we:

  • Meet with the child and their parents to talk about their needs and answer any questions about our school

  • Meet with staff at the child’s previous school or setting

  • Provide the child with a transition book that has photographs of the key staff and areas around school

  • Read reports from people who have worked with the child

  • Arrange visits to our school so the child or young person gets to see it before they start properly

  • Give any adults working with the child a one page profile describing the things that helpto support them in school

    When moving to a new year group we:

  • Give the child more opportunities to visit their new classroom and meet their new teacher.

  • Provide the child with an updated transition book that has photographs of the key staff and areas around school to look at during the school holidays.

  • Talk to the child and their family so we can answer any questions they may have about the new year group

  • Give any adults working with the child a one page profile or pupil passport describing the things that helpto support them in school

 

          When moving to a new school we:

  • Invite key staff from the new school to visit the child in their current setting

  • Talk to key staff at the new school about things that help the child to learn well and be happy at school

  • Arrange extra visits to the new school with a member of staff from our school if that is what the child and their family wants

  • Talk to the child and their family so we can answer any questions they may have about the new school
