We recognize that transitions can be difficult for a child with SEND and take steps to ensure that any transition is as smooth as possible.
How we will support children with SEND when they are moving on to another class or leaving this school:
We have a planned year 5/6 transition programme in preparation for children transferring to Secondary School. This is arranged by the year 6 and feeder secondary school staff. Throughout years 5 and 6 the children have many opportunities to visit the secondary setting. Alongside this, the SENCo liaises with secondary feeder schools, invites the secondary SENCo to Year 6 reviews and meetings and gather information about students prior to transfer in September.
Individual transition arrangements/plans are put in place where necessary to facilitate orientation and ensure a smooth transition. As a school we do our best to meet the individual needs of every child leaving us. This can be in the form of joint meeting with parents and the feeder school, arranging additional transition visits for more vulnerable children, liaising with external services and supporting children and parents with visits.
