Transition

Primary to Secondary School Transition

In the SEND department we know how important a successful transition is to our students with Additional Needs. We provide extra visits for those who we feel will benefit from an enhanced transition. The period of transition depends on the individual needs of the student. Staff will also take opportunities to visit our feeder primary schools and get to know the students in their current setting.

This gives us an opportunity to see what is currently in place for the student and how we can support them at Manor. Where needed, the SENDCO/HOY will attend the Annual Reviews to meet the current class teacher, parents and most importantly the pupil. At this meeting we hope to ease any worries or concerns for the move to Manor.

We are keen to involve parents/carers as much as possible in their child's transition to secondary school. We invite parents during the summer term of year six, this opportunity involves looking around the base, being introduced to staff and having the chance to discuss any concerns again before the start of year seven. This meeting is followed up by another invitation in the autumn term of year 7, where the transition period is discussed, reviewed and evaluated.

With high aspirations, and the right support the vast majority of young people can go on to achieve successful long-term outcomes in adult life. At Manor we work with pupils and parents to help pupils realise their ambitions in relation to higher education, independent living, participating in society and being as healthy as possible in adult life.

We also provide an enhanced transition for KS4 pupils moving onto their post 16 choice. This can include visits with familiar staff to the new provision. Inviting new staff to Manor to meet the pupil and attend Reviews where needed. Again the period of transition will depend on the individual needs of the pupil.
