12. How will you support my child when they join this school? Leave this school? Move to another class?

We recognize 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 SENCO will visit pre-schools with the Foundation Stage Leader when appropriate.
  • 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 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 SENCO 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 SENCO 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. Support staff meet together to pass on detailed information about the needs of individual children in their care.
  • If your child would be helped by a book to support them in understand moving on, then one will be made for them.

 

In Year 6:

  • The SENCO will discuss the specific needs of your child with the SENCO of your child’s secondary school. In many cases, a transition review meeting to which you will be invited will take place with the SENCO from the new school.
  • Your child will participate in focused learning relating to aspects of transition, to support their understanding of the changes ahead. Enhanced transition programmes for groups of the more vulnerable children are led by experienced support staff during June and July.
  • 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 to support them in understand moving on, then one will be made for them.
