The SENCo from the various Secondary Schools are invited to attend the Year 6 Summer term SEND reviews of all children transferring from Year 6 to Year 7. This enables the SENCo to have a more thorough understanding of a child’s particular needs as well as enabling parents to express and discuss any concerns they may have about their child moving school.
For some children, additional visits are set up to visit their Secondary School, so that they can become more familiar with the layout of the school and build a better relationship with staff.
A transition book is also made for those children that need it. This includes pictures of their new teacher, their new classroom and other key parts of the school.
