How will the school prepare and support my child when joining the school?

 

• We encourage all new children to visit the school prior to starting when they will be shown around the school. For children with SEND we would encourage further visits to assist with the acclimatisation of the new surroundings. We would also visit them in their current school.

• We write social stories with children if transition is potentially going to be difficult.

• When children are preparing to leave us for a new school, typically to go to Secondary education, we arrange additional visits. At our main ‘feeder’ secondary school, MK Academy, they run a programme specifically tailored to aid transition for the more vulnerable pupils.

• We liaise closely with staff when receiving and transferring children to different schools ensuring all relevant paperwork is passed on and all needs are discussed and understood.

• If your child has complex needs then an additional meeting or EHC Plan review will be used as a transition meeting during which we will invite staff from both schools to attend.
