Together We Grow

Welcome

12) How will we support your child when they are joining this school? Leaving this school? Or moving on to another class?

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

 

If your child is joining us from another school:

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

  • All pre-school children will have a one week transition period in July before they start school in September.

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

  • Your child is moving mid year they will be able to visit our school and stay for a taster session, if this is appropriate.

     

If your child is moving  to another school:

  • We will contact the school SENDCo 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 SENDCo 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 understand moving on, then one will be made for them.

     

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. IEP's will be shared with the new teacher.

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

  • All children will take part in a one week transition in July to prepare them for their new class in September.

 

In Year 2:

  • The SENDCo will discuss the specific needs of your child with the SENDCo of the child’s Junior School. In most cases, a transition review meeting to which you will be invited will take place with the SENDCo 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.
