How will you prepare and support my child to join the school, and how will you support them to move on to the next stage of education?

10. How will you prepare and support my child to join the school, and how will you support her to move on to the next stage of education?

What preparation will there be before my child joins BGHS?

We have close liaison with the primary schools where relevant information is shared about each child’s individual needs.  We actively encourage visits to the school prior to transition and offer specialist transition days for SEND students.  A Summer School runs during the August prior to students moving in to Year 7.

How will my child be prepared for her moving on to the next Key Stage?

Preparation for the next Key Stage is embedded into the process of the EHC and ‘My support Plans’.  For students moving on to college, a Transition Review is written in conjunction with the Careers Advisory Service.

What information will be provided to her new setting, school or college?

The information contained within the EHC is forwarded to next provider.

How will you support a new setting, school or college to prepare for my child?

We liaise closely with the new placement, ensuring that they are provided with the relevant documentation and any other advice or strategies deemed necessary.
