Transition

During the Summer term, all class teachers liaise closely with their children’s next class teacher to ensure needs are fully explained. All class teachers familiarise themselves with the child’s EHCP or School Support Plan. Parents of children with SEND are given the opportunity to meet their next child’s class teacher before the Summer holidays.  

Most children move onto Belmont Community School with whom we have close links. Children from Y3-6 are invited to a variety of events there each year. A transition worker visits school to work with Y6 during the Spring term. All the Y6 children have two induction days in July. The children with SEND visit Belmont Community School twice more and are involved in an email buddy project during the Summer term. At this time there is also close liaison between the two school SENDCO’s regarding the needs of the Y6 children with SEND. Outside agencies such as OT, SALT and CAMHS are also asked to liaise with Belmont Community School at this time to ensure a smooth transition

Children moving on to other Secondary Schools are encouraged to participate fully in their transition days and discussions take place between with the SENDCos. Additional visits can be arranged to provide additional transition.
