16. How will St Mary’s Fields prepare and support my child to transfer to the next stage of education?
Whether children transfer between classes within the school or move to another school we ensure:
A face to face or phone meeting between the SENCo and the new teacher to communicate the child’s strengths, progress, targets and effective support strategies.
Transfer of all written records.
Where necessary, pre transition arrangements are put into place to support a seamless move.
At St Mary’s Fields Primary school, arrangements are made for supporting pupils in moving to their next phase of education. The school has strong links with feeder secondary schools. During the Summer Term, the SENCos meet with secondary SENCos to discuss the needs of the pupils transferring. Where necessary, extra visits are planned and secondary staff begin making links with transferring pupils.
