As an infants’ school, in the summer term we organise transition visits with our main feeder nursery schools and other pre-school providers. Members of the Early Year’s staff from the school visit these providers to familiarise with the children and speak to the staff. Year 2 children take part in a structured programme of visits to the Junior School. This involves members of staff accompanying the children on a visit to their new school and helping them to settle into the new environment and meet the staff.
When children move to a different year group within school, transition meetings take place between staff where any needs are discussed. Extra transition visits are arranged for those children who may need them.
The organisation of transition for SEND children is an extension of this system. Children with SEND may require additional support when moving to their new school and work with staff at the nurseries and Juniors to ensure this is as supportive to parents and seamless for the child as possible.
The SENCos from the Infants and Juniors also have a transition meeting for children with SEND to ensure the process is as successful as possible.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
