Moving On

Moving on to school is a major transition in a child’s life involving separation from familiar adults and children. However, they need preparation if they are to approach transition to school with confidence and an awareness of what to expect.

We work hard to ensure that all children are fully prepared for the next stage in their academic journey, whether it’s to a local primary school, one further a field or home schooling.

Partnership with schools

We contact all schools to visit our children who are leaving, so we can talk to them about your child and share their learning journey so far.

We recognise that the well-being and learning of children can be enhanced given a positive experience of transition.  We are committed to support children and their families at times of transition having high regard to meeting their social and emotional needs.

Our aim is to ensure that in transition to school, children will:-

  • Understand what is coming ahead of time
  • Have some experience of the new environment and the people within it
  • Feel safe, secure and valued in their new school
  • Know that staff at school will listen to them and respect what they say
  • Understand what is expected of them (learning, behaviour) in school
  • Enjoy the experience of moving to the ‘big school’
  • Feel that they have a measure of control over the process

We have a very close link to Ben Rhydding Primary School and organise several stay and plays throughout the Summer Term to support transition.

We visit Sacred Heart school – usually at Christmas time to watch the dress rehearsal of their Nativity.

More details around transition and our policy and procedures can be found in our Early Years Handbook here.
