Transition

SEN Resources

The transition between educational settings or phases poses unique challenges and opportunities for pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN). The ‘Transition Resource for SEN Pupils’ section is crafted to provide targeted support, information, and strategies to assist SEN pupils, their parents, and educators during these critical periods of change. From the transition into primary education, moving up to secondary school, or preparing for post-secondary life, our resources are designed to ensure a smooth and supportive transition. Addressing concerns such as adapting to new environments, continuity of SEN support, and building upon previous achievements, these resources aim to empower SEN pupils to navigate transitions with confidence. By fostering understanding and collaboration among pupils, parents, and educators, we strive to create an inclusive educational journey that acknowledges and supports the individual needs of SEN pupils.
