10. How will the setting prepare and support my child/young person moving to the next stage of education/life.

Many strategies are in place to enable a pupil’s transition to be as smooth as possible.


  • Discussions are held between the previous or receiving schools prior to the pupil joining/leaving.

  • All pupils attend a transition session where they spend some time with their new class teacher.

  • Additional visits are also arranged for pupils who will need extra time in their new school.

  • Ms Jenny Wright, our Special Educational Needs/ Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo), is always willing to meet parents/carers prior to their child joining the school.

  • Secondary school staff visit pupils prior to them joining their new school.

  • The SENDCo liaises closely with the SENDCos from the secondary schools to pass on information regarding SEND pupils.

  • Where a pupil may have more specialised needs a separate meeting may be arranged with the SENDCo, the secondary school SENDCo, the parents/carers and, where appropriate, the pupil.
