One More Step

Early Years Transition to School Toolkit

This is where you will find advice, information and guidance on how to help children in your setting make the next transition into school.  Again, SENCOs should look at pages 12 – 14.  Although children start school in September, the transition process starts in the September of the previous year and this document will help guide you successfully through the process.

The Transition to School Toolkit has been updated to reflect the changes in the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and those anticipated in new SEN legislation.

It aims to continue building on the existing good practice in Barnet:

  • to support the transition procedure for all early years children, including those with special needs and disabilities
  • to provide children, parents and practitioners with tools and materials to support this procedure
  • to give more flexibility and choice to practitioners in terms of the transition record they produce for parents and schools.

I hope that the materials will be useful and contribute to a positive transition experience for all children in the early years.

If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact the Area SENCOs on 020 8359 7612.
