Pupils in Year 6 moving to Secondary School.
We work closely with our local secondary schools. The year 7 coordinators will visit the pupils in Dorrington Primary School.
The SENDCo and year 7 co-ordinator are invited to attend the annual review meeting of any pupil with an EHC plan.
The Year 6 class teacher will meet with the SENDCo and year 7 coordinator of the secondary school the child is moving to in order to share information and discuss the specific needs of the pupil.
Extra induction visits may be arranged to the secondary school if appropriate.
There may be a small group set up in school to help those pupils who may find the change hardest.
