KS1 and KS2

Key Stage 1 and 2

  • All children have a transition session (where they go to work with their new teacher/school) prior to moving to their next class.

  • Staff meet and share information prior to transition.

  • Provision map meetings for SEN children with SEN staff and new teacher and TA’s ensure all additional needs and support is discussed.

Transfer to Secondary school

  • SENCO and Learning Mentor arrange SEND transfer meetings with Secondary school SENCO/Key staff / Learning mentor prior to transfer.

  • Staff from Secondary schools visit school and meet children in their Year 6 class and speak to Yearr 6 staff.

  • The Learning Mentor works with our local secondary school to deliver an extended transition programme with parents and pupils to ensure a successful transition.

Pupils with additional needs who join our school either at the beginning of the year or during the academic year will be supported, as appropriate, so that a successful transition is achieved. The school works together with the Local Authority where a child is starting our school with an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) to ensure that they are appropriately supported in conjunction with parents.
