Answer 10

Answer 10:

We recognise that transitions can be difficult for a child with SEND and take steps to ensure that any transition is a smooth as possible.

Children joining Foundation Stage 1 and 2 will participate in transition activities including Induction days. Parents are invited to a meeting when they have the opportunity to meet their child’s class teacher for information sharing.

A multi-agency meeting will be held prior to starting school for any child with additional needs already identified.

When your child moves into the next year group information will be passed on to the new class teacher in advance and in most cases, a planning meeting will take place with the new teacher. where the needs of the child will be shared with the new teacher.

Transition to Higher Bebington Junior School can be a worrying time for both the parents and child so at Town Lane Infant School we do additional transitional visits and talk at length with the junior teachers about the children’s special educational needs.  We ensure that all paperwork is passed on to them and are made aware of any special requirements, both educationally and pastorally. The SENDCos from each school meet in June to discuss the needs of the children that are transferring to the junior school in September to ensure that all paper work and needs are discussed and she knows about any special arrangements or support that need to be made for your child.
