At Ludworth Primary School we recognise how important a successful transition is to our pupils with additional needs. We want the process to be as easy and stress-free as possible.

We work in partnership with our feeder secondary schools to provide an enhanced level of transition for those who we feel would benefit from this. This may take the form of additional visits for pupils or one to one / small group working with secondary school staff.

The period of transition depends on the individual needs of the pupil. If it is felt appropriate secondary school colleagues will come into school to meet the current class teacher, parents and most importantly the pupil. We have found this strategy particularly useful in easing any worries or concerns parents and pupils may have.

We benefit from being a small school as all staff know every pupil. Transition from each Year Group is therefore easier for the children as they already know their new class teacher.  We also have a transition day so children are familiar with the new classroom environment and organisation.

New starters for Reception children are provided with the following opportunities:   

  • Parent Open Information meeting
  • Children's visits to Reception class in the Summer Term
  • Pupils and Parents invited for School Lunch

We are extremely flexible and are prepared to organise extra transition sessions or meetings with external agencies to make transition as easy and stress-free as possible.

If you have any questions about our SEND Local Offer please contact the school and we will try our best to help you.
