Special Educational Needs


Joining or leaving the school

17 Nov 2016

How do we prepare children for transitions?
Many strategies are in place to enable the child’s transition to be as smooth as possible.              
These include:
  • Play and stay sessions and parents invited to lunch for those children joining nursery or reception.
  • Photographs of new environment and staff taken home to talk about with child.
  • Extended part-time provision.
  • Class buddies identified.
  • Discussions between the previous or receiving schools prior to the pupil joining/leaving.
  • All pupils attend a transition session where they spend some time with their new class teacher.
  • Additional visits are also arranged for pupils who need extra time in their new school.
  • Inclusion Lead and class teachers meet parents/carers prior to their child joining the school.
  • Secondary school staff visit pupils prior to them joining their new school.
  • Inclusion Lead will liaise with the SENCOs from the secondary schools to pass on information regarding SEND pupils.
  • Where a pupil may have more specialised needs, a separate meeting will be arranged with Inclusion Lead, the secondary school SENCO, the parents/carers and where appropriate the pupil.
  • Regular transition visits will take place where children are particularly vulnerable.
  • Transition meetings will take place between all agencies involved when a child with SEND is joining or leaving school.
  • Children move into new classes at the end of the academic year.
