Support for Children and Young People Moving Between Phases of Education

Support for children and young people moving between phases of education.

Transition from an early years setting to school and from primary school to secondary school and then to further education is a vulnerable time for all children and young people but especially for those with special educational needs and disabilities.

When we invited early years settings to make an entry to the Local Offer one of the questions they were asked to respond to is:

How will the setting support my child in transferring to the next stage of education? You will find their answers to this question in their offers

When mainstream and special schools submitted their entry to the Local Offer one of the questions they were asked to respond to is:

How will the school support my child to join the school and how will the school support my child in transferring to the next stage of education? You will find their answers to this question in their offers 

Early years settings and schools provide a lot of support for children and young people transferring between all stages of education.

Additional support from Outreach Providers is commissioned by the Early Years Early Intervention Panel, The Primary Consortia and the SEN and Early Intervention Panel
