(Updated Autumn 2018)
We recognize that transitions can be difficult for a child with SEND and take steps to ensure that any transition is as smooth as possible.
The transition arrangements can be completely personalised according to a child’s needs. The secondary school work closely with us and communication is excellent.
Key members of staff make visits across the Spring and Summer terms to deliver various information sessions. During the Autumn term there is a ‘Taster Evening’ at the secondary school for children and parents. Members of staff from both schools meet at least twice to swap information, but SEND children have individual meetings.
The BIG Walk and Talk event means that all of the children and teachers meet and come together in a huge celebration through Barnard Castle itself. Finally there are three transition days devoted to the Year 6 into 7 children in the penultimate week of the year.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
