How will we support your child as they move between classes or to another school?
We recognise that transition of any sort can be difficult time for you and your child and will take steps to ensure that this process is as smooth as possible.
- For children entering the school from another setting we will work with the previous SENDCo to ensure we have information on the best way to meet the needs of your child. We will also invite you and your child to visit the school so we can discuss the best ways to meet their needs.
- When moving classes in the school information will be passed to the new class teacher in advance and your child will have opportunities to visit the new class and meet the new teacher. Strategies and ideas that have been working well will be shared. A support book may sometimes be used to help your child.
- When moving to a new school we will contact the SENDCo to ensure they know about any special arrangements and will ensure that all records are passed on.
- When moving to secondary school we will arrange to meet the SENDCo to talk about ways to ensure the transition is smooth. There may be specific meeting to prepare you and your child for this move and will be appropriate for the child to visit their new school.
