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 as smooth as possible.

If your child is moving to another school:

  • We will contact the new school’s SENCO and ensure s/he 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 in all cases, a planning meeting will take place with the new teacher.
  • A transition book is made and a copy made for home to help your child understand moving on.

In Year 6

  • The Inclusion Manager will discuss the specific needs of your child with the SENCO of their secondary school.
  • 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 accompanied by a member of staff who knows them well and in many cases staff from the new school will visit your child in this school.
