How will you prepare and support my child to join school or transfer to a new school?

How will you prepare and support my child to join school and/or transfer to a new school?

Most children will enter into the Reception Year and have their needs assessed as part of our transition programme:

  • Nursery visits by class teacher and SENCO
  • Home visits by class teacher and learning support assistant
  • Story time visits to the school in the summer term
  • Information provided by previous setting (attainment, safeguarding, attendance, SEND)
  • Information packs completed by parents
  • Information provided by Hampshire SEND team
  • SEND surgeries between class teacher and SENCO within the first month of school
  • Observations made by class staff and SENCO – “A day in the life of…”
  • . Formative and Summative Assessments 

 

When a child joins our school at other times of the year, their needs will be assessed by:

  • Transfer of data from previous setting (attainment, statutory assessments, SEND, attendance)
  • Transfer for safeguarding records (CPOMS)
  • Professional discussion between SENCOs and class teachers
  • SEND surgeries between class teacher and SENCO within the first month of school
  • Observations made by class staff and SENCO – “A day in the life of…”
  • Meeting between parents and SENCO/class teacher

 

When a pupil on the SEND register moves to another primary or secondary school, a higher than normal level of contact with the receiving school is initiated by the SENCO to discuss:

  • Current needs
  • Provision in place to meet those needs
  • Attainment and progress
  • Emerging needs

Safeguarding records and attendance
