At St. Andrew’s Primary School, we understand the importance of transition for all pupils, particularly those with additional needs. We work closely with the local secondary schools to provide careful support and consistency as part of the transition process. We liaise with the secondary schools and where necessary provide extra visits for some pupils, which can be supported by a member of our school staff. If a child has a Statement of SEN or and Education Health Care Plan, secondary colleagues are invited to attend the child’s annual review.
If a child who has SEND transfers to St. Andrew’s Primary School, every effort will be made to ensure their transition is as successful as possible. Depending on the needs of the child a more bespoke package for transition may be offered to ensure a successful transition.
At St. Andrew’s Primary School, for transition between classes, children have the opportunity to visit their new class on transition days in the summer term. Teachers also meet to share information about those children who require additional support and to share effective provisions.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
