Moving between phases of education
Pupils transferring into the mainstream provision from another setting, including from the infant to the junior school, will normally be offered induction visits so they can become familiar with their new setting, peers and staff.
Any pupils transferring out of the mainstream provision will have similar induction opportunities planned to their new setting.
Secondary school placement can be discussed at any time, but it is formally discussed as part of the child’s Statement of Special Educational Need or Education, Health and Care Plan annual review in both Year 5 and 6. Parents are encouraged to visit secondary settings before the reviews, to inform the discussions. For pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs, small group transition support is available in Year 6 during Term 6.
