Meetings are held with the Head teacher and parents before children begin school. Questions or queries are often resolved at these meetings although it may be necessary to have separate meetings with parents if your child has additional needs. New Nursery and Reception children are also given a photo book explaining about their new school and teaching staff.
For secondary school transition, staff meet with the Head of Year 7 and the secondary school holds meetings at Cavendish Primary school to talk with children and parents who are transitioning to secondary schools. All reports are shared and SEND files accompany the children as they move through different schools.
For children moving up to the next class within the school, comprehensive transition takes place. This could involve meeting early with their new teacher, spending time in their new classroom to get used to the environment, or photos and information about their new class. In addition, all assessment and information regarding children moving class is communicated with the new teacher before the end of the Summer term.
