Secondary Transition

All pupils partake in a thorough transition to secondary school within class time, through discussion and visits.  The Class Teachers and SENCO, where necessary, will talk to the adults who will support your child in the Secondary School Placement and all paperwork will be provided and, where required, parents attend these transition meetings.

Some pupils who are highlighted as potentially being vulnerable with the transition to secondary school are invited SNAP Project (Secondary Not a Problem) which consists of 3 afternoons plus whole day transition.

In addition the SENCO and Class teacher from Warden House will continue to liaise and support the Secondary School setting. If, when your child has left, their new school have concerns we will advise further.

Warden House runs a bespoke transition package for our highest need pupils, and is tailored individually to suit pupils, and the transition setting.  This package could include: additional visits inside and outside of school hours, visual photos of the new school setting, teachers, etc. Support with transport e.g. a member of our school completing the journey with pupils prior to transition to ensure security, buddying/mentor programmes, and supporting the secondary placement with the knowledge of work completed and advice of further support to be given.
