Preparation and Transition

How will the school prepare and support my child to join the school, transfer to a new school or the next stage of education and life?

Home visits are planned for children joining the school in reception as well as sessions to come into school to get to know the classroom and adults. Transition books are produced for children that would benefit from them. Transition arrangements are in place for children moving to other schools in year 6, consisting of transition programmes and visits to their new schools, with extra visits for children that require them. All information is shared with their ongoing school as well as meetings taking place between the two schools to share information. For children that join the school midyear we have a successful induction process and children are provided with a buddy, for children that speak a different language we are able to offer young interpreters to aid the transition into a new school.
