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.
