How we support children/young people with SEN starting at our school
The SENCO liaises with staff from the feeder Nursery schools. Meetings are held to support the transition of pupils from one setting to another. Extra visits are arranged for parents and children to ease transition.
How we support children/young people with SEN moving between classes in our school
We have transition days to prepare pupils to meet their new teacher as they move through school. For pupils with SEND we draw up a transition passport in collaboration with the child: they can take the passport home over the summer and prepare for and remind themselves of the changes which they will face in September. We also prepare a one-page pupil profile which details what their new teacher needs to know about them.
How we support children/young people with SEN leaving our school
The SENCO liaises with the SENCO from the receiving High School and other secondary schools. Meetings are held to discuss individual pupils’ needs and how the school can best support them in the next stage of their education. Parents who choose an alternative provision for their child, for example, a special school or enhanced mainstream setting, are supported by the SENCO in achieving a smooth transition.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
