18. How does Waynflete Infants’ School support children with SEND moving school or to a different class?

We recognise that transitions can be difficult for a child with SEND and take steps to ensure that any transition is as smooth as possible

If your child is moving to another school:

  • We will contact the school SENCO and ensure he/she knows about any special arrangements or support that need to be made for your child.
  • We will work with you child to create an All About Me book for their new class teacher to share with them. 
  • We will make sure that all records about your child are passed on as soon as possible.
  • We are happy for you to take your child out of school in order for them to visit their new school.

 

When moving classes in school:

  • Information will be passed on to the new class teacher IN ADVANCE and in most cases, a planning meeting will take place with the new teacher.
  • A book about moving class will be made with your child, for them to take home and share with you to prepare them for the change. 
  • We will work with you child to create an All About Me book for their new class teacher to share with them. 
  • We are fortunate, being a small school, that children often get familiar with most the adults within school. However extra sessions can be planned for your child to start to build a relationship with their new class teacher before transition. 

When moving to the Junior School

  • A meeting with the Junior School SENCo will take place, either over the phone or face to face to discuss any special arrangements or support that needs to be made for your child.
  • If the Junior School is not in Brackley we are happy for you to to take your child out of school in order for them to visit their new school.
  • If the Junior school is in Brackley extra transition day/s may be requested to ensure that your child feels comfortable in the new setting and know where important areas are e.g. Toilets, their new classroom, the lunch hall ect. On these day/s your child may meet their new class teacher and start to build a relationship with them to ensure familiarity when they start in September
  • We will pass on any records about your child in advance. 
  • A book about moving class will be made with your child, for them to take home and share with you to prepare them for the change. 
  • We will work with you child to create an All About Me book for their new class teacher to share with them. 

 

During any of these transition times if we or you feel it necessary to have a Transition Meeting that involves members of staff from Waynflete, members of staff from the new school and yourselves, we are happy to arrange this.
