How we support children/young people with SEN starting at our school
We are federated with Oxclose Nursery and therefore we already know the majority of our children through regular visits to the Nursery throughout the year.
For children who do not attend the Nursery, EYFS teachers will liaise with the other nurseries and ensure that they are fully aware of the child’s abilities, interests and needs.
We have a series of transition visits for all children starting at Ox Close so that the children and parents become familiar with the setting.
How we support children/young people with SEN moving between classes in our school
Ox Close is a community and so the children know all of the staff. When the children are reaching a transition point, we have transition days in school so that the children become familiar with their new teacher, setting and also the differing routines.
How we support children/young people with SEN leaving our school
Children with SEN are given an extensive level of support before they move to their new school. We work closely with parents and their school of choice to make sure that the transition is as smooth as possible.
As well as in school meetings, there are opportunities for extra transition visits to the new school and also an assigned point of contact.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
