Transition

Transition 

We aim to make times of transition as easy as possible for all children in our school.

When starting at school we:

  • Meet with the child and parents to talk about their needs and answer any questions about school.
  • Meet with staff of the child’s previous setting.
  • Provide the child with a transition book that has photos of the key staff around school, as necessary.
  • Read reports from people who have previously worked with the child.
  • Arrange visits to our school so the child gets to see it before they start.
  • Give any adults working with the child a one page profile describing the things that help to support them in school.

When moving to a new year group we:

  • Introduce the child to their teacher individually.
  • Provide the child with an updated transition book that has photographs of the key staff and areas around school to look at during the holidays, as necessary.
  • Talk to the child and their family so we can answer any questions they may have about the new group.
  •  Give any adults working with the child a one page profile describing the things that help to support them in school.
