SEND Transitions

“SEN support should include planning and preparing for transition, before a child moves into another setting or school. To support the transition, information should be shared by the current setting with the receiving setting or school. The current setting should agree the information to be shared as part of this planning process.” (SEND Code of Practice 2015 section 5.47)

Transition Materials section 5 has a focus on Inclusion

To help with this process you may wish to use a transition passport – see documents below:
