How will we support your child when they are leaving this school? OR moving on to another class?

We recognise that ‘moving on’ can be difficult for a child with SEN/and or disabilities and take steps to ensure that any transition is a smooth as possible. 

 

  • If your child is moving to another school:
    •  We will contact the new school’s SENCO and ensure he/she knows about any special arrangements or support that need to be made for your child.
    •  We will make sure that all records about your child are passed on as soon as possible.
  • When moving classes in school:
    • Information will be passed on to the new class teacher IN ADVANCE and, a planning meeting will take place with the new teacher.
    • If your child would be helped by a book to support them understand moving on then it will be made with them.
    • The children will visit their new class room and be introduced to their new environment.
  • In Year 6
    • The Inclusion Leader will attend the Primary Transition Day to discuss the specific needs of your child with the SENCO of their secondary school, and the specialist session for students with an ASD, as appropriate.
    • Your child will attend a small group in school, to support their understanding of the changes ahead. This may include creating a ‘Personal Passport’ which includes information about themselves for their new school.
    • 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.
    • Staff from the new school will be invited to the final review of your child’s Statement or EHC plan.
