Transition from our feeder providers begins with a meeting for parents/ carers to set out the procedures and expectations for their child’s time in our school. Parents/ carers are also informed of all of the ways their child can be supported during their time with us. Staff visit children in their nurseries to see them in a familiar environment. Children then have a series of school visits in the last half of the summer term to get to know their new school.
We have strong links with Bowes Preschool which is based on our school site. The children attend collective worship with us every week and eat lunch with our children in the school dining hall. Teachers liaise with Preschool, sharing planning and learning opportunities as well as outdoor resources.
Transition sessions, for all year groups, towards the end of the summer term prove successful every year across the school.
We have strong and successful links with the local secondary schools in our area. The staff from these schools work in our school at different times of the year.
Towards the end of Year 6 the class teacher works with the receiving schools to ensure all necessary information regarding achievement and needs are shared.
Where children with SEND are moving to new provision we will work closely with the receiving school to ensure their needs continue to be met both during induction and into the future. Where there are more vulnerable children moving to different schools, meetings are held between their class teacher/SENCO and the academic and pastoral team of the receiving school to ensure provision for their needs is known and continues.
If you have any questions about our SEND Information Report please contact the school and we will try our best to help you.
