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.
